For example, why the fuck would a laywer quit his law job to become a teacher? He is wasting all of his time and effort at law school. Also, being a teacher is shit with low pay, low social status, etc. These people are probably romanticising their jobs too much. Teaching has its own shitty aspects where you have to deal with kids who don't give a fuck about education and mark exams at home. The grass is not always greener on the other side of the fence. These lawyers can also strive to teach at college level, so why not do that?
And what about engineers, actuaries, bankers, nutritionists, pharmacists, accountants, etc who switch to teaching? Switching makes no sense.
Because they wish to and enjoy it.
Same reason some people leave their lives in 1st world countries behind and move to some 3rd world country barely surviving but enjoying their lives. Because they like it.
>I don't know these people that well. Surely there are these people on 4chan?
No. There is no people who are lawyers on 4chan let alone ones who went into another profession.
Everyone here is either NEET, underaged, a college student or working a shit-tier job.
I had a friend who was a lawyer for a massive corporation and made so much fucking money. He was head of the legal department and had millions upon millions saved up.
When he turned 50 he quit his job and went back to uni to become a teacher. His reasoning was that his 10 hours a day working were void of meaning, there was nothing fulfilling about helping billionaires work around the law .
I have a friend like you that is just about the money, it satisfies him that he is the richest out of his friends. However, others are satisfied and driven by other things. Psychologists are often driven by a desire to help people, teachers want to "inspire the next generation" and make them passionate about something, lab assistants like making breakthroughs in medicine, etc.
What's the point of doing your job if you want to loll yourself every moment of your working day?
>What's the point of doing your job if you want to loll yourself every moment of your working day?
This. It's pretty easy to see how teaching might be very appealing to some people. It doesn't even pay that bad taking into account pension plans.
Teaching people about your passions in life and making them excited to learn seems like a very fulfilling experience.
>Not to /biz/, though. I think he's a /pol/ guy.
An investment banker coming to 4chan let alone /pol/?
I'm a qualified urban planner Masters, have a Ba in Property and earn 6 figures every year.
Why shouldn't I cone here, it's fun and the only people in my life who are honest.
I'm an oldfag autist who's made money, I prefer here to the golf club
Investment bankers are normal people. I think people forget that the 'wall street kind' are regular people just end up getting paid a shit ton when they move up the corporate ladder.
It's just a job, like an accountant or a civil engineer. I don't get why it's so unbelievable.
Are most of you guys actually NEET's? I thought that was just a meme and some of you were actually making money. But, if you can't believe a rich guy would be in your presence, maybe none of you even grew up with the opportunities to make money.
Most of the people here are NEETs, underaged or in college.
I just don't see why anyone successful with a well paying job would want to waste their spare time talking to a bunch of NEETs and generally unknowledgable and inexperienced people.
Especially that he mentioned /pol/. An investment banker working 80hr weeks coming home for a couple hours posting about niggers, Jews, "the plague of degeneracy" and browsing cuck threads? Funny to imagine.
Not all schools are in the ghetto.
And it's just one example, people change occupations because they want to do something else all the time. If it makes you happier than having the extra money, then why wouldn't you do it?
Maybe in the movies.
Where a hopeful, relatively young and inexperienced teacher goes to an urban area and tries to educate a class of unruly but hurt teenagers, eventually through love and persistence he gets through to them and they all graduate and some even get into Top tier schools.
No master of the universe here, but I'm 30+ work in financials. My salary is higher than the median salary in the USA, and I have a year's worth saved up in investment accounts.
I'm currently sitting on the shitter, drinking coffee, browsing /biz/ and /pol/. Gotta leave for work soon, but I'll be back to browse later tonight.
