What is the basic personality inclination of people doing PhD studies? Does this vary by field of study? Can such generalizations be made?
I am only asking in an unscientific, somewhat curious manner---knowing the nature of generalizations--but that said--any thoughts? ( making small talk...could you ask this of a social gathering at your department?)
Well-- you COULD make the hair colour generalization! I have brown hair.
As someone on the way extrovert end of the scale, I like noisy busy places to study--most of the time. Silence makes me go crazy---most of the time, but there are those times you need to lock yourself away to get stuff done...
Hmmm...another question--do people with brown hair in PhDs tend to be more extroverted or introverted?
Red hair has been mentioned here--in fact people opting to TURN their hair red from brown ( at least in my case!) And there is also black hair, and I am loathe to say, grey hair ( which turns up during PhD studies, apparently ( having just plucked one from my head) and then of course NO HAIR--whether by nature or by design!
