An essay is presented on suggestions for students of psychiatry. It states that psychiatrist should carefully listen to his patients as they share their secrets and reveal disturbing events of their lives. He should be able to win their trust and convince them that he will never harm them. It suggests that psychiatrists need to have curiosity which helps them to understand the patient and make discoveries about him. Inquisitiveness removes the sameness and helps to view them as individuals.
