Anatomy of a Doctor [infographic]

I’ve always enjoyed helping others, but I don’t think I’ve ever seriously considered medical school. Hard work does pay off, but only if you’re good at biology in this case. My problem has always been the crazy amount of names to learn. This semester I learned how to clone genes in my class, but unfortunately I’ve already forgotten most of the details.

The thought of medical school and MCAT tests already raises my stress levels. It’s no surprise that a large percent of doctors feel stress. Only half of them recommend their career to others. It seems like a fun career once all the classes and training are done. My doctors always seem to be happy by the way they carry themselves. The really high salaries probably help boost their attitude.

So not everyone is cut out to be a doctor. Although it sounds really cool and we dream about as a child, becoming a doctor is not always practical. It is a high-intensity job with high-intensity pay. But the joys of helping others and saving lives are worth it. [Rn to Msn]

The Online Customer [infographic]

This year, more than previous years, I joined the massive force of online holiday shoppers. I was able to check 5 people off from my holiday shopping list in an hour and all without much more than a few clicks to “add to my cart” and pay. I didn’t have to dodge any fist fights over a Tickle Me Elmo stuffed animal, or come home reeking of the perfume that always manages to cling to hair and clothing after a department store visit.

It’s true that shopping online, while convenient, loses some of the personal touch of shopping. When you need help, sometimes all you can turn to is the FAQ page, which inevitably will not have the answer to your terribly original question. But, as today’s infographic observes, many companies are ramping up their online customer service options because of the direct correlation between quality customer service and repeat sales.

Whether you are an online shopper or the customer service guru at an online store, take a look at this infographic for some facts and statistics about how online shopping has grown over the years and what customers want from an online shopping experience. [via]

The Single Life [infographic]

These days, I have many friends who are constantly wondering, Who am I going to marry? When will I meet someone special? I am constantly telling them to go with the flow and not worry about it, but giving advice is a lot easier than taking it. Feeling worried and anxious about finding someone to love is very normal, but seeing statistics like these make show that it is better to wait, take your time to figure out if the relationship is right and settle down with the right person.

Statistics show that 1/3 of marriages end in ten years, and over half of adults over 18 are married. That alone makes marriage seem scary! On top of that, “getting intimate” only two to three times a month definitely seems like a nightmare. THis infographic also sights gaining weight, which is every females worst nightmare. Marriage is presented in a very unglamorous light, and making single life look like a cake walk.

While being in love and living happily ever after is the goal, this infographic reminds us that it is best to be sure. Waiting will help you know that you are with the right person and keep you from a dwindling sex life, weight gain and inevitable divorce. Dating for four years seems like a while (A Fell), but as a 21 year old I am in no rush to tie any kind of knot. So all of you singles, perk up, get yourself out there and buy an ipad or 80. [Via]

Can you believe Christmas is this Sunday? It feels like just yesterday I was sitting down to stuff my face full of turkey for Thanksgiving. With the gift giving holiday I’m sure a lot of you have last minute shopping on the mind. Today’s infographic outlines the psychology behind different shopping habits and the different types of social commerce associated with each. It’s a pretty cool infographic, what category do you fall in?

On a different note Kim Jong-il is dead. For those who don’t know he was the leader of North Korea, a potential nuclear threat. His death could prove to cause instability within an already volatile country. Who knows what his son, the name heir, will do in order to prove his power. [via]

Space Waste [infographic]

Usually, the term “space exploration” or the idea of people venturing into space has been associated with innovation, education, and groundbreaking new discoveries.

While all of this is absolutely dandy, no one seems to ponder what happens too all the junk left in space from these glorious missions.

Currently, figures for this thick ribbon of “space waste” pale in comparison to the horrific masses of garbage here on Earth. It’s safe to suppose we are all very aware of that issue by now. Most of us have heard of what is now being called The Great Pacific Garbage Patch… yet no one has yet heard of Earth’s Trashy New Belt.

Not only is this another glaring example of humankind’s pension to destroy all things beautiful, but it is a relevant and very dangerous problem. Lest we forget, in space, garbage doesn’t just sit there—it hurtles around the globe at extreme speeds.

The more human-made objects whizzing around in this belt, the more likely deadly collisions become. Current as well as future missions to space will doubtlessly be affected by this lethal band of hyper-fast trash. [via]
