In our society, psychiatrists are among the lowest paid physicians.*
Unlike our society, mental health is anything but swept under the rug in Japanese society in Psycho-Pass.
**So in JAPANESE SOCIETY in PSYCHO-PASS:
How lucrative is being a psychiatrist relative to other medical professions? How lucrative is being a psychiatrist relative to other professions? A mental health professional?**
Feel free to spoil the figures if any and even the context. I'm expecting some kind of twist to reveal that MHPs are actually paid much higher or much lower than public perception.
Or you could just give the public perception of the figures then put the true figures in spoilers or something.
I'm not sure I saw a figure in season 1 (haven't seen past that), but
based on the existence of Sybil system and all that, I'm guessing it takes a lot of mental health expertise to maintain.
Sybil is made up of brains of people with ASPD or something (well technically those who can't be read by Sybil system or something)
I don't see how mental health expertise isn't as highly valued in other aspects.
People want to keep psycho-pass levels low right?
It's not like there's some
conspiracy about manipulating psycho-passes.
Even if there was a
conspiracy, how would you do that without mental health expertise right?
*of course I'm adjusting for things like country, experience, etc so with sufficiently high probability, a psychiatrist will earn less than a non-psychiatrist doctor assuming they're both in the same state and have the same amount of experience
