I was 16 years old when I decided I wanted to become a psychologist.  My inspiration was a television show about measuring children's intelligence.  It wasn't the idea of measuring intelligence that particularly fascinated me.  It was the idea that something about the human mind could be quantified, and that information could then be used to help someone live their best-possible life.  

I have learned a lot about the human mind since watching that television show on a random afternoon when I was teenager.  There's also a lot that I have yet to learn, and even more that is yet to be discovered by geneticists, neuroscientists, researchers, and the like.  There is one piece of knowledge that I think will stand the test of time. That is the knowledge that, regardless of life's circumstances and possible mental illness(es), our minds are creative.  There are always new skills and perspectives that we can develop to help us experience joy, contentment and positive mental health.
