Spot on.

When I was young I had to go to the shrink a lot but I rarely felt they contributed anything except giving me a safe space to express myself. Fortunately they never gave my any drugs.

A lot of people in my life are studying to be or already are psychologists and I feel they fit a certain stereotype. I'm not sure if it's correct but it feels like they all had a troublesome youth (well who hasn't) and feel like they want to be psychologists because they want to help people while still getting a similar status of say a doctor but without having to do the hard stuff that's required for that.
