Seems to me that touchy/feely/tactile people would be drawn to “helping” professions just like people who seek power issues are drawn to professions that it to them.
I’ve experienced the same and I’m in freaking Canada. One the one hand, seems logical to say something — but on the other hand, no one wants the doctor or nurse caring for them to have their nose out of joint.
Which is a long way of saying damned if you do and damned if you don’t. lol.
