CONCLUSION

Yes, I would love to work this job because I love to design/create and I am also interested in psychology. This job is like a mix of the two: I would get to design software and apps based on people. I would have to interact with people, study their emotions and reactions to the software, and change/improve the software depending on those reactions.
