Professionals Who Take Themselves Too Seriously

This post was written with help from friends on Facebook (FB) and inspired by a picture I saw on LinkedIn yesterday. A Black female lawyer posted a picture captioned, “My Law Firm,” or something like that, and the picture was her all-Black staff sitting at a table staring. I get the big deal (they’re all Black & Female-led), but why so serious?

That led me to contemplate what other professions do I see out there where it just seems like they often take themselves WAAAAAAY too seriously, and to want to post about it.

The following list is presented in no particular order – I get to play devil’s advocate at times – and it features text I didn’t 100% write. I will call out and credit people with first names (that are slightly changed to prevent internet shenanigans) only when used.


Cool. Jumping into it.
