Do you guys notice any personality change before versus after or during med school? I feel that my personality has changed alot since I entered med school; some for better, most for worse. I want to talk about one aspect of medical school that has affected my personality. I feel like med school emphasizes so much on professionalism, which is a very good thing, but the flip side is that it has made me much more anal when I become "more professional" in my personal relationships as well. Before med school, I'm cool with people making dumb jokes and sometimes even laugh along. Now in med school, I sometimes think that these jokes are just plain dumb. Before med school, I'm cool with people chilling out and not really caring about the future or just taking a really long vacation to have fun. Now in med school, I tend to characterize these people as unmotivated or lazy. Before med school, I don't mind corny words or actions, but inow in med school, I think these things are a waste of time. ...... You get the idea. I'm not very happy about this transformation. I wonder if anyone else has noticed a personality change and whether you are happy about it?
