Great question! There is the clinical component of psychology (psychologist, psychiatrist, etc.) where you are immersed in the field daily, providing one on one therapy and there are careers where you can APPLY psychology as needed: business, human resources, clergy, social services, human services, criminal justice, etc. Managers in a number of industries, as an example, benefit from a psychology background in more ways than one, but particularly due to the diversity of backgrounds they deal with. Whether it be cultural, generational, economical, whatever, the psychology foundation is an effective tool to embrace these challenges in a professional manner outside of having your own practice after going the traditional route of becoming a doctor--psychiatrist--or licensed counselor/psychologist (typically the trajectory of those pursuing a psychology degree). :0)
