Imagine having the ability to tap into the mind of criminals. Spending every day digging deep into their subconscious and figuring out why they committed the crime, if they are or are not mentally stable, and working with law enforcement agencies to profile criminals. If I could make a living by doing what I love most, it would be to step in the role of a criminal psychologist.
When I signed up to take Psychology as a dual credit course my senior year of high school, I had no idea how attached to it I would end up becoming. It became a common thing for me to read my school book for entertainment and work three or four chapters ahead of the rest of the class. When I had got to the chapter about criminal psychology, I had become addicted to learning. I researched many criminals including Ted Bundy And Ed Gein. Each criminal that I researched interested me in a way that others may not understand or may even find unsettling.
If I were able to earn a living by doing what I love and becoming a criminologist, I would hope that I would be able to step inside criminals’ minds and figure out why they committed the crime. In doing so, I could stop others with similar mindframes from going down the same path in life. Through criminal psychology, I would hope to lower crime rates and prepare others by teaching them what to look for in criminals.
