All we need is Steve Sailer’s axiom that people who battle nature are markedly different than people who battle other people.
While both surgeons and psychiatrists deal with people, surgeons deal with people in the most dispassionate way possible and the most scientifically pure and objective way possible. (Remember, many times, surgery patients are unconscious.) Psychiatrists, OTOH, deal with people in the most people-y way possible, they deal with the most uniquely human feature of the human species, and the medical science of psychiatry is one of the most subjective gray area ridden disciplines of medicine.
