I followed the career path of computer programming.
University killed my pasion for it and I got a bare pass (however top of the entire dept for the one bit I was interested in - programming) on and off since I’ve wished I’d done a course on psychology. You see I’m fascinated by how the mind works and how it sometimes doesn’t work in spectacular ways.
I just now realized my interest in computing may have been influenced by a semi-subconcious desire to work in a field which aims to implement the workings and quirks of the humam mind in an artificial form (computers)
To put it into one sentence. I want to be the person that figures out how to create artificial intelligence.
