Hi,

I appreciate your interest in knowing what a psychologist does. If a psychologist is involved in private practice mainly involving providing counselling or other psychological services, he/she would be bound to an office, however being restricted to a particular physical space does not necessarily denote boredom. It is what they do in that office that determines if their job is boring or not. Personally, if I were in that office feeding in some data, only making reports, doing some mechanical work, I would definitely be bored. But a psychologist job has much more to it. It involves interacting with clients, dynamic human beings with their own unique personalities, life experiences, problems, way of looking at life etc. A psychologist has to understand the client's perspective, their family members and other social agents' role and then chalk out a plan to tackle the problem that the client might present. Each case, thus would be so different from each other that each one of them would be a challenge. Imagine, how can it ever get boring, when your job changes with each client? That is the joy of being a psychologist. It is an art and a science that challenges you at each step.

In addition, not all psychologists are confined to an office. Some work in a hospital setting where they come in contact with patients in the wards as well as in OPDs, they get to interact with parents, family members etc. There are others who work in NGOs, schools, in different settings like in slums, in remand homes, with street dwellers, addicts, with the aged, with orphans, with widows, with sex workers, etc. Getting in touch with humans in need for help is a part of their job and this can happen in any setting. In addition, psychologists also work in the corporate setting helping to maximise the potential of employees by identifying learning needs and planning and implementing training programmes, inproving the organisational structure, etc.

Thus, the work of a psychologist can be extremely dynamic and ever changing, with little scope for boredom.

Lastly, boredom in a job is not only afftect by the job itself but by the attitude of the worker. So if you dont enjoy your work, you can be bored of your job even if you are an ace footballer or a rocket scientist or a psychologist.

Good luck!
