Comment My Thesis on Psych Profiles for Pointy Heads (Score 1) 133

I am completing my psychology Ph.D from ITT Technical Institute, and have written my thesis on the parralelisms in psychological profiles of bolth cops and acedemics. It seems that they have a deep seeded underlying need to appear technologicaly knowlegeable in the face of other pointy-heads and enforcment officers. When one can project the illusion of competence in one field, it releives them of an innate inferiority complex, derived from the fact that bolth psycologists and cops realy don't do much that requires deep thinking, analasys, or reason in their chosen profession.

Anecdotal evidence exists suggesting these traits in journalists.
