in reality, yeah it does matter. Your surface appearance is the first thing people will see, and unfortunately initial impressions and ‘judgements’ are made at that moment i.e. if there is nothing else to go on.
think of it like this. The result might now give Luann more confidence in her ability to make a career choice, i.e. that she was making a good decision after all. If she wants to work with young children she could go for elementary education or kindergarten. It’s Bern that might need to re-assess her goals.
Luann has it right in the last panel. Bern will now argue with the test results. Note, a psychology degree is perfectly fine for applying to Law school (if she wants that). And Luann can now have more confidence that maybe she made the right decision after all.
i’ve never taken one of these tests; I’ve always had interests, maybe too many and never had the problem of trying to decide what to study. I figure if you are not capable to do something you’ll find out pretty soon after you try.
the test doesn’t say what you are going to become (as Luann seems to think) but what you could become if you make the decision and put in the training and effort.
for some situations one is confident, for others one may not be.
it’s true; sometimes we feel confident and sometimes we don’t. she’s being honest.
“….Luann might be a decent therapist…” yes, because as a therapist you don’t want to jump to immediate conclusions about a client (as Bern would try to do). You just want to listen and let them unload while you process it.
it’s true we are all indecisive at some point. But the issue is how long do we remain in that state?
I think if one is indecisive then it suggest one needs a job with structure and order and where you don’t have to make decisions on your own.
