Psychologists
Description: Psychologists study the way people think, feel, and act. They work to understand, explain, and change people's behavior. They may conduct training programs, do market research, or provide counseling. They may also work with mentally ill individuals. Psychologists work with schools, businesses, and health-care centers to help people deal with stress and changes in their lives, such as divorce and aging.
