Certain images pop into your head when you think about some professions, and these images aren't always so favorable. The reason they come to mind is probably not because of your personal experience with a particular profession, but your impression is instead based on the way these professions are portrayed on television, in movies, or on what you know about the few bad seeds that are present in every field of work. Let's take a look at why we hate some professions and learn the truth about them. Who knows ... you may wind up finding your future career, once you know the facts about it.

01 Dentists

A trip to the dentist usually means you* will have a little bit of discomfort, if not pain. Add your experience with dentists to the fact that they often are portrayed in movies as somewhat sadistic. Take for example Orin Scrivello, DDS in Little Shop of Horrors as portrayed by Steve Martin. Who didn't cheer when Seymour fed him to Audrey II, the man-eating plant?

Truth is, dentists are trained to administer anesthetics which help them do their job while inflicting as little pain on patients as possible while examining patients' teeth and mouth tissue to diagnose and treat problems. To become a dentist one must attend dental school after earning a bachelor's degree.

02 Stock Traders

Most of what we know about stock traders we've learned from movies and the news media. They are out to make a buck and it doesn't matter who gets in the way. "Greed is good." That was the mantra of Gordon Gekko, the stock trader portrayed by Michael Douglas in Wall Street — for both the 1987 original and the 2010 sequel.

Stock traders buy and sell stock on behalf of investors who may be individuals or companies. While some stock traders carry out these transactions on the floor of a stock exchange, most work on trading floors maintained by the securities firms that employ them. It is a challenging and often stressful job that requires the ability to make decisions very quickly. The minimum requirement to work as a stock trader is a bachelor's degree in business, finance, accounting or economics but many traders go on to earn an MBA.

03 School Principals

Every adult remembers being a child who was afraid of getting sent to the principal's office. It may have felt like the principal was out to get you ... but only if you misbehaved. Take for example Principal Ed Rooney in Ferris Bueller's Day Off. He tried to keep high school student Ferris Bueller from playing hooky. Why did he make it his life's mission to get Ferris back to the classroom. You would have thought he'd be happy to have this troublemaker out of his hair.

Principals can be considered the CEOs of elementary, middle and high schools. They are responsible for everything that goes on inside their buildings. They establish educational goals and make sure their teachers meet them. They prepare budgets; hire, advise and evaluate staff; and offer emotional support to students and their families. Most school principals work first as teachers. They generally must earn a master's or doctoral degree in order to be promoted to principal.

04 Used Car Salesmen

He's fast-talking, lies and does it all with a smile on his face. He tries to win your trust and then sells you a heap of junk that falls apart as soon as you drive it off the lot. Isn't that the image that comes to mind when you hear the words "used car salesman"? And why shouldn't it be? That's how they have been portrayed on television and in movies since ... well, since there have been television and movies.

Like other retail salespeople, a used car salesman helps customers find what they are looking for and tries to persuade them to purchase those items. They usually earn a commission, so a used car salesman's income is very dependent on his or her ability to make sales. This requires excellent communication skills, knowledge of the cars he or she is selling and a pleasant demeanor. To work as a retail salesperson one usually needs only a high school diploma.

05 Lawyers

For most of us, everything we know about lawyers comes from the multitude of jokes we have heard portraying them as snakes, liars and thieves ... and those are only the less offensive jokes.

Lawyers represent and advise their clients in both criminal and civil cases. Lawyers may specialize in one of a variety of areas including criminal, real estate, matrimonial, probate, and bankruptcy. Some are general practitioners. Lawyers navigate the legal system on behalf of their clients. The lawyers we see in television shows and in movies are usually arguing cases in court, but many lawyers, depending on their specialties, never, or infrequently, set foot in a courtroom. Aspiring lawyers attend law school for three years after earning a bachelor's degree.

06 Tax Examiners

No one enjoys paying taxes. Perhaps that's why we hate tax examiners so much. They are the ones who try to catch tax scofflaws. In the process, they snag some innocent people in their nets, making them go through time-consuming audits. Yes, tax examiners audit tax returns in a quest to make sure filers' returns are correct, but they are doing it to make sure everyone pays what they owe. After all, we don't want other people to get away with paying less than their fair share. To become a tax examiner, one must earn a bachelor's degree in accounting or a related field. Sometimes an associate degree combined with work experience will suffice.

07 TV News Anchors

While a reporter is out in the field in the midst of the disaster du jour, the tv news anchor is sitting warm and safe in the studio looking as if all is right in the world. But, all isn't right! A car has fallen off a bridge, there's a war going on and someone has been murdered. Why is the anchorman smiling? It does make you hate him or her, doesn't it?

TV news anchors present news stories and introduce reporters who are in remote locations. They sometimes deliver analyses of various news stories. Many tv news anchors began their careers as reporters, so they are well-aware of what the reporters are experiencing out in the field. Most employers prefer to hire job candidates who have a bachelor's degree in journalism or mass communications.

08 Politicians

Political debates have become shouting matches filled with insults and half-truths instead of forums for political candidates to express opposing points-of-view. Add that to politicians taking kick-backs, cheating on their spouses and lying to their constituents. It's not hard to see why politicians have gained a bad reputation.

Politicians are generally elected officials who run the federal, state and local governments. They enact and carry out laws and make decisions about the distribution of public funds. Many lawyers enter politics, but anyone can become a politician as there is no formal training required. All it takes is the desire to influence the laws of the country or of your particular city, town or state.

09 Nurses

We like to think of nurses as angels of mercy but every now and then one comes along who takes that image from our minds and replaces it with one of pure evil. Think Nurse Ratched from One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. It's a good thing they're fictional characters or we'd never be willing to set foot in a hospital.

Registered nurses (RNs) treat and educate patients and their families about medical conditions. They perform diagnostic tests and help analyze their results. Licensed practical nurses (LPNs), working under the supervision of RNs and doctors, care for patients who are sick, injured, convalescing or disabled. To become an RN you have the option of earning a bachelor's of science degree in nursing (BSN), an associate degree in nursing (ADN) or a diploma in nursing. BSN programs are generally four- years long, while it takes two to three years to earn an ADN. Diploma programs also last about three years. To work as an LPN you must first complete a state-approved training program that includes a combination of classroom study and supervised clinical practice.

Ha Ha ...

Deckard, I know you scanned quickly down the list looking for cops to be on “The 9 Most Hated Professions” and you were devastated to find they were not listed.

Oh well, c'est la vie.

You might hate dentists until you really need a good one.
