Recently I have been thinking on one of the most difficult, it seems to me, issues around academics and their working life within academia, being rejected.
Although they might exist, I don’t know anyone that likes to be rejected. Myself being a psychologist have kind of a theoretical perspective on this. People engage better with their peers, and by being clustering themselves in little boxes. Let’s see some examples such as, I’m a psychologist, I’m part of that group. I’m a football player, I’m part of the sporters. I like beer, the beer group is for me. I aim to build my company, I will try to engage with people who aim the same or similar stuff, and so forth… Even the people that live alone into the wild will be part of a group. At least metaphysically, these people will belong to the group that was able [maybe allowed as well] to be as that.
