PsiChick: redmid17: PsiChick: /Yeah, I have no worries at all.
//And you still need to think twice before badmouthing a profession to someone in it. I mean, really, am I badmouthing your job?

You're not a teacher. You're in college. You didn't specify university level teaching. The entire thread has been about elementary and secondary educations majors.

I'm also pretty sure you don't know what I do for a living. My point is that your assertion that people are not going into teaching is demonstrably false. I don't really give a shiat if the growth rate of the job market is good or bad. I also never badmouthed the teaching profession, so check your liberal arts reading comprehension level.

Ah, apparently I wasn't clear enough. Adjusting for market growth, the relative number of people going into teaching is, from what I know, declining. The field reflects, if not directly that, certainly at least enough of a healthy growth market so I still would not need to be worried. Fair 'nuff about the college thing, though, I should have implied that.

And you seem to be missing the point. Once I said I was a liberal arts major, you...continued badmouthing the liberal arts majors by claiming people went into them 'because math and science is hard'. Again, I invite you to join in the discussion on the implications on artificial intelligence in science fiction implied by the psychological implications of intuition. It only involves a basic understanding of psych, so it shouldn't be hard or anything, right?


That was a different person. *I* have a liberal arts degree (German). I also took psych and a class on artificial intelligence in college (Informatics elective). I didn't find either particularly compelling and that must have been 5 or 6 years ago at this point, so I will pass on your rather arbitrary discussion of Sci Fi computers.
