    Is it sensible to go into something even if you're not 100% passionate about it?

    For example, I have a good degree in Psychology I graduated with last year. However, psychology only half interests me. However, I am considering doing a masters in Developmental Psychopathology, which interests me a lot, but I'm not 100% into it. I'm maybe 80% into it. And a career in research seems like a decent choice.

    But what else can I do? I simply cannot decide with 100% certainty what I want to do with my life.

    And applications are now open... it's in Europe where tuition is much cheaper as well. So I think, what have I got to lose?

    Oh and I'm 24.

    Yes. How many people have a passion for accountancy? But it gives someone a stable if rather dull job.

    yes
    'Yes you're passionate about your career choice' or 'Yes it doesn't matter if you're not 100% into it'?

    Sorry if my question isn't clear...

    Hmm it's true but kind of sad really, although I'm sure the money and stability make up for it. For me personally, I place job satisfaction really high and so figuring out what to do is stressful as I'm so confused and indecisive :confused:

    I don't think anyone can really say 100% once you're in it.
