Psychologists are responsible for assessing the emotional well-being of their patients. Most psychologists have doctorates, which, according to the BLS, “generally requires about 5 years of full-time graduate study, culminating in a dissertation based on original research.” However, unlike medical doctors, the vast majority of psychologists set their own hours and appointments, and while many work nine to five, this is not a requirement. Also, more than 40% of people in this position work in schools, meaning they are afforded the same summer vacation to boot.
