Alaine de Botton, writer and philosopher, recently tweeted:

In architecture, as in writing, but not dentistry, most practitioners are at any time feeling badly about how things are going.

I once read that architects and dentist were the most depressed professions out there, and that hairdressers measured highest in the happiness index (Metro, UK, some years ago).

So the dentists have one up on us it seems. But they don`t get to dream about designing the world better!

Architects are critical, yes, but surely depression and “feeling bad” are avoidable by having a certain positivity in one’s attitude?
