Did it play a role for any of you when it came to deciding what you wanted to do?
2. All our educational direction changes once we hit early adulthood as we are trying to decide on a career. The textbook mentions cognitive flexibility meaning we adjust our decision making (and possibly our life path) as we acquire new information.
Has this happened to any of you? I experienced it myself so I am curious!
When I first started college I thought I'd be an elementary school teacher, it was the primary reason I went back to school. However after the first two years of prerequisites I found that was not really where my interests were. I took a General Psychology course as an elective and that was all she wrote :) I instantly became hooked and my entire schooling and career plans changed. Has this kind of thing happened to anyone else? Did any of you start school with one degree program/career path in mind only to decide to change it? Why did you change?
