Are we really different?

So get this...apparently, someone has actually done research on how lawyers differ from the general population. Not only that, the research goes from pre-law to practicing lawyer showing the changes that are made (or in some cases accentuated) in a person who chooses law as a career field. Interesting stuff for those of us in the legal profession, but boring for everyone else as is the case with law stuff in general;) For those who care or are too bored to go elsewhere on the internet, check out the research:

Proof that Lawyers are a bunch of depressed, addicted, aggressive nuts.

This is very interesting to me as I've always had an interest in the law, but have never attended law school.

While this may be a stereotype, it does seem to hold true to some cases. That is the funny thing about the legal field, it is full of people from across the sprectrum. You have those that want to save the world and right all the injustices in the world, and those that just want to make lotsa money. Maybe most just fall somewhere in between.
