The Psychologist Versus the Philosopher
The Question is who is more likely to be successful the psychologist or the philosopher. First lets examine what we mean bye each term and not take anything here for granted. The person who practices the study ot the mind. Actually, the ancient ones used the term differently in Latin, psyche meant, soul or mind. While philosophy means a person who loves=philo, sophy=knowledge.
What I have observed in this society at this time period, is that people like facts based on evidence. Since the Psychiatrist does statistical test to support their theories then I would it gives them a stronger position in their arguments. In my eyes everyone is a philosopher most people I know want knowledge. However, most people I know do not want to take the time to go and test theories to prove or disprove them, therefore I must conclude that the psychologist will be more successful, if all other factors are equal between the two people.
The psychologist is more likely to have stronger information on group behaviors, so they could easier manipulate a situation. The philosopher would have their own mind to go by and that is great, however, it is more likely that the numbers will make the difference.
