    With my experience around physicians for the past 10 years, if you do not truly want to become a doctor and do not exhibit a real passion for medicine, you will not be happy as a doctor. You will most likely (80-90% chance) be a miserable person if you choose to be a doctor for money, reputation, etc. You need to love medicine and love helping people; otherwise, you will be miserable. The 10-20% chance you will not be miserable is if you somehow come to love medicine and helping others; either way, you must exhibit these two qualities. Also, communication and "people" skills are extremely important. Arrogance will not bode well for you.

    I suggest you explore different career paths. From your posts, it appears you are not actually passionate about becoming a doctor. Sure, you may put on a facade at the HPME interview and may get accepted into the program, but do you really want to be under such a facade for the rest of your life?
