Career aspiration?

I have always been fascinated by the reasons people engage in the behaviors and habits that seem ingrained in their being, yet they are not aware of. My ideal career would be one in which I could explore this curiosity with a team actively engaged in discovering these insights.

-Strategic Brand Consulting & Communications (Carrie Heilman)
-Consumer Behavior (Amar Cheema)
-Marketing Research (Jim Burroughs)
-Sound Design (Michael Rasbury)
-Commercial Law (Sherri Moore)
