Definately not a psychologist - imagine living with someone who tries to get into your head and solve your personal problems all the time.

I'm more interested in psychology so I'll plump for that.
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Wednesday 4/7/04 - 6:07:39 AM EST (GMT-5)
Definitely a mathematician. It'd by a plus point (so to speak) as far as I'm concerned.
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Wednesday 4/7/04 - 6:11:33 AM EST (GMT-5)
im a mathematician, so id go for that
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Wednesday 4/7/04 - 6:15:51 AM EST (GMT-5)
A psychologist. They would be more like me. And I don't think real psychologists are like TV psychologists. They can't just "get into the heads" of anyone. Being close enough to marry someone makes the psychologist too involved to crack their spouse's brain.

Oxie - well, they're going to try to do that anyway. Might as well be good at it.

Mathematician. As Rita Rudner said, "I'm not good at math-I've never been good at math. I accepted it from a very early age. My teacher would hand me a math test, [and] I'd just write on it, 'I'm going to marry someone who can do this.'

:) I think psychologists would try to figure out all my problems. My mom already tries to do that.

Could there possibly be two more boring professions? Why would you choose either?
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Wednesday 4/7/04 - 6:46:55 AM EST (GMT-5)
I don't think psychology is boring at all...
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Wednesday 4/7/04 - 6:49:04 AM EST (GMT-5)
A psychologist isnt neccasarily a psychiatrist...
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Wednesday 4/7/04 - 6:55:49 AM EST (GMT-5)
To me, both professions would require either a strict mind and/or an intesnly orderly one. I view life as far more messy than either of these professions could ever relate to and I'd drive them both mad. I don't think life can be calculated or explained so marriage to either of these would be boring in the least, unbearable in the extreme.

^^Psychology isn't so black and white, Oz.
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Wednesday 4/7/04 - 7:10:08 AM EST (GMT-5)
I know that Psychology has many levels and forms, but the ultimate goal of each is the same. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying it has no purpose, I just don't believe the human mind can be categorized/analyzed clinically. Some do, I don't.
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Wednesday 4/7/04 - 7:12:52 AM EST (GMT-5)
mathematician is more black and white, i like certainty, so ill go for that.
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Wednesday 4/7/04 - 7:14:56 AM EST (GMT-5)
I see. But there are also a lot of psychologists out there who would agree. And most have the greater goal of helping you understand yourself, rather than their trying to understand you. Where I studied, the focus was on existential phenomenological psychology. It took into account the human condition, the uniqueness of every individual existence, and the goal was to understand that each was unique.
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Wednesday 4/7/04 - 7:16:52 AM EST (GMT-5)
LOL! Touche. I concede.
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Wednesday 4/7/04 - 7:18:40 AM EST (GMT-5)
Woo Hoo! Now get out there and marry a psychologist! NOW!
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Wednesday 4/7/04 - 7:19:18 AM EST (GMT-5)
A psychologist would teach me more of what I want to know.
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Wednesday 4/7/04 - 7:25:58 AM EST (GMT-5)
OK. I'm on my way!
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Wednesday 4/7/04 - 3:12:39 PM EST (GMT-5)
I think a psychologist (a clinical psychologist ) will be hard to talk to. . . .and will try to prove how everything is your fault, so I'd definitely go for the mathematician knowing he will be crazier than me

By the way this question arouse in a casual conversation with a few friends at college, one of our teacher's is married to a psychologist. . . . I said nothing could be worse, but my friend proposed, a mathematician would be the worst, and everyone agreed with her.

it makes no differece
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Wednesday 4/7/04 - 3:37:28 PM EST (GMT-5)
A mathematician maybe. So at least one of us could do the kids' homework.
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Wednesday 4/7/04 - 3:40:09 PM EST (GMT-5)
^Bwahahahahha...

Well, I don't know any psychologists or mathematicians personally, so I couldn't say.

15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Wednesday 4/7/04 - 4:54:44 PM EST (GMT-5)
Math Is my fave sub. so I'd say.. Psychologist!! Jk.. I'd say Mathematician
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Wednesday 4/7/04 - 6:12:42 PM EST (GMT-5)
Mathematician, I could't stand to be psycho-analyzed all the time.
