I know there are many types of psychologists, but I am just asking for psychologists in general.
Please, and thank you! : )

“The median expected salary for a typical Psychologist in the United States is $78,243.”

Here’s what I found from the Occupational Outlook Handbook 2010–2011.

Keep in mind that the monthly/yearly salary for psychologists varies from state to state, sometimes greatly. So, I would suggest specifically looking up Hawaiian psychologist wages before you make any decisions.

There are many areas for Psychologists to work. A clinical Psychologist with a busy and successful practice will earn many times the amount of a psychologist working for an employer in another area.

If you work in a public school system, not that much. If you have a practice or have a research position at a major university, probably a nice salary.

In the UK they start at around £30,000…. in the NHS.
