Nikhil Kamath reveals his alternative career choice

Zerodha co-founder Nikhil Kamath, in a recent post on X (formerly Twitter), shared his thoughts on an alternative career path outside of finance. He revealed his deep interest in psychology.

"For anyone who asks, 'If not a job in finance, then what?', it's definitely psychology for me. The most interesting thing is figuring out why we are how we are," said Kamath, who is recognized as a billionaire by Forbes.

In addition to his career insights, Kamath also reviewed a book he found noteworthy. "Good book, 8/10, takes forever to finish, but great to catalogue summaries of different schools of thought," he added.
