Must remain calm and not show the crazy. Fear is the little death, fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little death, fear is the mind-killer.

Its been an eventful week; 3 dates--with the same man. Remarkably good. The workplace, not so much. I will explore that a little more over the next couple of days. In the meantime, here's something interesting regarding the psyche of physicians from over at Medpundit. To a large extent, this list is applicable to veterinarians too.

And there's this summation of the doctor personality:

Docs are very career-focused, and fit into the corporate/medical/academic world quite naturally. They are constantly scanning their environment for potential problems which they can turn into solutions. They generally see things from a long-range perspective, and are usually successful at identifying plans to turn problems around - especially problems of a strategic nature. Docs are usually successful, because they are so driven to leadership. They're tireless in their efforts on the job, and driven to visualize where an organization is headed. For these reasons, they are natural leaders.

There is not much room for error in the world of Doc. They dislike to see mistakes repeated, and have no patience with inefficiency. They may become quite harsh when their patience is tried in these respects, because they are not naturally tuned in to people's feelings, and more than likely don't believe that they should tailor their judgments in consideration for people's feelings. Docs have difficulty seeing things from outside their own perspective. Docs naturally have little patience with people who do not see things the same way as they do. Doc needs to consciously work on recognizing the value of other people's opinions, as well as the value of being sensitive towards people's feelings. In the absence of this awareness, Doc can be a forceful, intimidating and overbearing individual. Doc has a tremendous amount of personal power and presence which will work for him as a force towards achieving their goals. However, this personal power is also an agent of alienation and self-aggrandizement.

Docs are very forceful, decisive individuals. They make decisions quickly, and are quick to verbalize their opinions and decisions to the rest of the world. A Doc who has developed in a generally less than ideal way may become dictatorial and abrasive - intrusively giving orders and direction without a sound reason for doing so, and without consideration for the people involved.

Although Docs are not naturally tuned into other people's feelings, these individuals frequently have very strong sentimental streaks. Often these sentiments are very powerful to the Doc, although they will likely hide it from general knowledge, believing the feelings to be a weakness. Because the world of feelings and values is not where Doc naturally functions, they may sometimes make value judgments and hold onto submerged emotions which are ill-founded and inappropriate, and will cause them problems - sometimes rather serious problems.
