* If you fix computers for a living, [[http://www.cracked.com/blog/6-reasons-guy-whos-fixing-your-computer-hates-you/ this article]] explains why it's actually often best not to draw attention to that fact around your friends and family. For those too lazy to click a link, it's because you'll be treated the same as you are at work (i.e. horribly) but you won't get paid for it.

** Psychologists themselves. There is subversion (and justifications) of sort in the Indonesian which says, "There are two reasons someone become psychologist. People who have compassion to treat the madmen, and people who are madmen and want to be treated." So, basically people who have psychological issues can become psychologists in the hope of be analyzed and treated. The success, or not, is dependent on each individual.



* UsefulNotes/WoodrowWilson's political career is a famous example. As President of the United States, Wilson was almost singlehandedly responsible for the founding of the League of Nations--an international peacekeeping alliance of unprecedented scope and ambition, which rewrote the rules of international diplomacy forever and paved the way for the eventual creation of the United Nations. At the time, the creation of the League of Nations was one of the greatest feats of diplomacy in human history, and it required convincing more than 50 different countries to trust each other enough to sit at the negotiating table together after UsefulNotes/WorldWarI had split the world in two. But the one country that Wilson ''couldn't'' convince to join the League? His own. Isolationist sentiment in the United States was far-reaching after World War I, and many influential lawmakers in the country (most notable Henry Cabot Lodge) were cagy enough about foreign entanglements to stop the United States from becoming a member nation. Thus, Wilson never got to join the organization that he helped build.

* In ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'', Rose is constantly trying to psychoanalyze her friends and their family issues, yet dismisses her own mother's sincere-if-overblown gestures of affection and attempts to connect to her as spiteful.

* One ''ComicStrip/{{Dilbert}}'' strip had Dilbert attending an economics class. The professor has already prepared a presentation explaining why he has to dress like a flood victim despite being an expert on money.

The cartoonist, Scott Adams, has an economics degree; this may very well be TruthInTelevision.

* ''ComicBook/DCOneMillion'': Heartiac is a "12th-level compassionate". She defeats bad guys with sheer kindness. She gives lectures on forgiveness. Her species is just as devoted to love as their Coulan ancestors (EG Braniac) were to intellect, and she's a bright star even in that firmament. And she can't tell Superman One Million that she's fallen for him. Or notice that he seems to have more than a colleague's interest in her.

* Another well-known logic problem; A father and his son are in a car accident. The father is declared dead on the scene, while the son is brought by ambulance to the hospital, where the surgeon on duty says, "I can't operate on him, he's my son!" (Naturally, the answer is pretty well known now, women doctors are more common when it was first posed, but indeed, giving treatment to your own son is professional favoritism.)

** "No Man's Land" kicks off with an 8.3 earthquake that devastates Gotham. Fortunately for Bruce, he had always insisted that all of Wayne Enterprise's buildings needed to be built to withstand 9.0 earthquakes. Unfortunately for Bruce, he forgot about Wayne Manor and the Batcave.

Unfortunately for Bruce, he forgot about Wayne Manor and the Batcave. (He later admits to himself that he had meant to, but kept worrying that any workers he had hired would discover his identity, and had no personal skills in that area to speak of.)

* ''Anime/YuGiOhGX''; when Napoleon's son Marcel attends Duel Academy, Napoleon purposely isolates himself from his son (even keeping it a secret that Marcel ''is'' his son) because showing favoritism towards a student is taboo for a teacher. (And it's the hardest thing he ever had to do, as he admits.)

* In Carolyn Mackler's ''Literature/TheEarthMyButtAndOtherBigRoundThings'', Virginia's mother is a supposed "expert" on teen psycholoogy. However, she has a tenuous relationship (at best) with her own teenage daughter, treating her like the ButtMonkey of the family simply because she doesn't share her parents' or her older siblings' interests or goals. She also frequently verbally berates Virginia for her weight, among other things. In a particularly shameful move for a psychologist, both parents try to block Columbia from prosecuting their son after he date-rapes another student.

* ''Series/UnbreakableKimmySchmidt'' has Kimmy's therapist Andrea. Andrea is a very capable counselor, but she's also a drunken wreck whose completely unable to deal with her own issues in a healthy way (if anything, her psychological training only makes her more able to rationalize her bad behavior).
