Poznata pevačica, 1978. godine diplomirala je psihologiju na Univerzitetu u Majamiju, i kako izvori navode, želela je da bude dečji psiholog (Dr. Glo).

1990. godine na turneji je doživela tešku saobraćajnu saobraćajnu nesreću. Oporavak je trajao godinu dana, a u intervjuu koji je dala za magazin Living Fit objašnjava šta je motivisalo da se bori za život:  „Because I had studied psychology. I understand the stages. You have to go through the depression, the crying. Then, at a certain point, I pulled myself up and said, ‘Okay, no more. You can’t continue this way.’ I wasn’t going to end up in a wheelchair. I had seen my father confined to a wheelchair; I saw his helplessness and I didn’t want that for myself or my family.“

2. Hugh Hefner

hugh-hefner-playboyHju Hefner, osnivač Playboy magazina, prvo je studirao na Chicago Art Institutu, a zatim se prebacio na Illinois Univerzitet na kom je stekao diplomu psihologa, 1950.godine. Tada je upoznao je i svoju prvu ženu, Mildred Williams (1949. godine). Verovatno mu je znanje tokom studija i pomoglo da još bolje upozna mušku psihu 😉 . Zanimljiv je podatak da je i Crystal Harris, njegova sadašnja supruga (mada ko bi to ispratio), takođe studirala psihologiju na San Diego State Univerzitetu. Napustila je studije kako bi se preselila u čuvenu Playboy palatu: “I was a psychology major, and I didn’t want to be a psychologist. I thought it would be cool to come up here and just, you know, hang with Hef. School will always be there, I guess.”Mudro, nema šta.

3. Katharine Hepburn

Oskarovka Ketrin Hepbern je stekla svoju bačelor diplomu psihologije na Bryn Mawr koledžu. Vrlo malo je podataka na internetu, ali uspeli smo da pronađemo sledeći citat koji to i potvrđuje: „The studies and the individual professors had an enormous effect on me, because the professors were kind and interested in kids’ finding their way. There was Professor James Leuba, who was the head of the psychology department when I was going to major in psychology, and he had a daughter who was interested in dancing, so he was in as bad a spot as my father. He suggested the courses that I take. At that time, I wanted to study medicine but I was really absolutely absent in the head in chemistry; I didn’t understand what it was all about because I didn’t concentrate. … Ihad something [acting] I was awfully anxious to do, so my attention was divided.“

 

4. Natalie Portman

Natalie_Portman

1999. godine upisala je studije psihologije na Harvardu (već je bila poznata glumica), a diplomu je stekla 2003. U intervjuu za New York Post rekla je: „I don’t care if [college] ruins my career. I’d rather be smart than a movie star.“ Sve se dešava nakon snimanja filma Where the Heart Is, a izjavila je i da tokom studija neće glumiti osim u slučaju Star Wars nastavka. Tako je i bilo, tokom letnje pauze na fakultetu, od juna do septembra 2000. godine, snimila je Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones, u Sidneju.

Na Harvardu je bila asistent u istraživanjima profesora Alana Dershowitza: “She was in my seminar called Neuropsychology and the Law, and I didn’t know who she was because her name was Natalie Hershlag. It was a few weeks into the semester that I learned she was an actress—but she was a terrific student.”

Objavila je dva rada kao ko-autor u naučnom žurnalu. Jedan od njih je objavljen 2002. godine, kao doprinos istraživanjima memorije, pod nazivom „Frontal Lobe Activation during Object Permanence: Data from Near-Infrared Spectroscopy“.

Nekoliko profesora se oglašavalo u medijima i povezivalo njen akademski i profesionalni uspeh: “It was very clear when she was a student that she is a very determined person and capable of focused effort over a sustained period,” he said in a statement via e-mail. “She is now demonstrating the results of that determination and focus.”(profesor Stephen M. Kosslyn)

“It’s all about choice. And she has choices and options. She would be a great psychologist, and she’s a great actor. She probably influences more people in her acting. ….Her psychology background helped her in formulating the role for [Black Swan] … She’s an actor who uses her academic background.”(opet profesor Dershowitz).

Još malo od same Natalie: “I’m ready to ditch the movies and keep at the books. There are so many other things, and it would feel limiting to say, ‘Acting is it for me.’… I love psychology. That’s what I’m studying right now. It would probably be difficult, because of my current occupation, to become a clinical psychologist, but I could certainly do research. And I’d like to have a family someday, too.”

Takođe je istakla i koliko joj je diploma psihologije pomogla da se ostvari u ulozi Ines (u filmu Goya’s ghosts): “I talked to my old professor – she had worked a lot with female prisoners – and she gave me a lot of the common personality disorders you find in women who have spent time in prison.”

5. Ted Bandy

Iznenađenje, iznenađenje! Serijski ubica, Ted Bandy, upisao je studije psihologije sredinom 70tih godina. Naravno, bio je jedan od najboljih studenata. 1971. je počeo da radi u Sijetlu, u kriznom centru za prevenciju suicida (telefonsko savetovalište). Tu je upoznao Rule-a, bivšeg policajca a budućeg pisca krimi-romana, koji će kasnije napisati i Bandijevu biografiju “The Stranger Beside Me”. U to vreme, kako navodi, Rule nije primećivao ništa problematično u Bandijevoj ličnosti,  i opisuje ga kao dobrog, empatičnog i anksioznog.

Bandy je jedno vreme usled depresije prekinuo studije. Ubrzo saznaje da mu je sestra zapravo majka, a da su mu roditelji- baba i deda. Negde u to vreme, njegovu stidljivost zamenjuje lažna hrabrost, vraća se na studije i stiče bačelor diplomu psihologa.

Inače, Bandija je kao potencijalnog osumnjičenog među prvima je prijavio jedan od njegovih profesora.

6. Monica Lewinsky

Kad več pričamo o iznenađenjima, i Monica Lewinsky se nakon dobro poznatog seksualnog skandala, povukla iz javnosti, preselila u London i završila master studije iz socijalne psihologije. Naslov teze je bio: „In Search of the Impartial Juror: An Exploration of the Third-person effect and Pre-Trial Publicity“. Osnovne studije psihologije je zavrsila 1995. godine u Portlandu, na Lewis & Clark koledžu.

7. Jon Stewart

Jon Stewart

Poznati američki komičar i satiričar, 1984. godine je diplomirao psihologiju na William and Mary koledžu. Pre toga, dve godine je pohađao studije hemije: “He said he changed because in chemistry they want the right answer, but in psychology they just want an answer”. Nakon diplomiranja izjavljuje: „…and immediately proved how unemployable a person can be who comes out of William and Mary with a degree in psychology.“

S obzirom da studije retko pominje u javnosti, novinari su ga pitali da li smatra da je vreme koje je proveo na W&M bilo protraćeno: „Not completely. I drank beer, met some nice people, made some good friends, stared at the desk where James Madison once sat, played soccer. If I had known myself better at that age, I could have saved time and tuition money. After college, I knew there was no way I would be doing anything in the field of psychology.“

8. Lil Wayne

I’m endlessly interested in people, their journeys and their souls. I’m not sure what I will do with it.” U slobodno vreme, Marcia uprkos glumačkoj karijeri, nastavlja da prati svoju strast za psihologijom.
