As a student who chose to study Psychology, people tend to get the wrong idea of what we actually study about and what our job-scopes are. Ridiculous questions you ask, ridiculous answers you get. Below are some of the most asked stereotypical questions to Psychology students, and they strike back!

1. “Can You Read My Mind?”
