I have always been interested in psychiatry due to its abstract and intuitive nature. However, people I meet tell me they can't see me as a psychiatrist because I am not warm and fuzzy. I do admit, I am very analytical and logical, sort of like Sherlock Holmes as portrayed on that British TV show that just started airing (not to that extent of course, I can and do often pretend to be more mainstream). However, people like Freud and the old school psychoanalytics seem to be logical, like me. I was wondering, can someone who is very logical set up a private practice as easily as someone who is warm and fuzzy? In the end, can patients (or your referral base) tell that just because you are not emotional/sympathetic, that you are still a good psychiatrist? No need for polite words or theoretical words, I prefer those telling me what they have personally seen out in the private world. Thanks!
