How sure can you be of your specialty choice?

I recently got a really good question about how doctors pick their specialties. The answer to that question will be posted in several parts, but I thought I’d also say a few words about the certainty, or lack thereof, that many people feel about their career choices. 

No one is more confident about what they want to do with their life than a Pre-Med student (before taking the MCAT). I’m pretty sure that as we progress, we never get back to that point of complete certainty. There are always doubts, what ifs, and daydreams of alternative careers

The rest of my opinion on this topic I will let you gather from the graph above. Because everyone likes graphs. Handwriting by yours truly.
