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.
