Did you read my previous posts on the matter?
I'm talking about the advantage that solely philosophy degree could give and you don't need to have a degree, which also matters.
But I was wrong, I'm talking about philosophy as a subject to learn on your own, having a degree of philosophy won't give you much but finding true passion in this subject will grant you a whole lot.
You will become a better person in every aspect, more patient, calm, more empathy, better understanding psychology of the people's feelings, eloquence and the influence in conversations therefore self-assurance, confidence in the decision making, wit and intelligence, fast processing and wise solutions.
In the long run, philosophy, as a subject, not like a studying direction, will give you a lot more for your everyday and specific routed life. With the new perception of the world you will potentially have, you will be able to set new goals and pursue for succeeding. It's all about mindset and philosophy is what takes care of it.
It grasps all human points, not just specially choosen ways for certain occupation. You will simply become a better human being, smarter, kinder and hearty. It might not help you survive necessarily but it will surely help to survive the others which is surely better.
Selfishness has no place in a civilised world.
