Hello Alifaraax,

I'm afraid I don't understand your question. A person's title could refer to their job (Head of Marketing / Chief Financial Officer / Senior Researcher), it could refer to a professional qualification which gives a title (Doctor / Professor), or it could refer to a title granted through a person's position in society (President / Cardinal / Senator).
