You must be really dumb to do a PhD

  1. They want to confirm/verify/validate to themselves that they are smart. If that is the case what you need is a psychiatrist advisor, not a PhD advisor.
  2. You are bitten by a stupid bug which tells you that you want to teach for a living. To you I say: Refer salary statement above. The biggest trick devil ever pulled off was to convince the academic faculty is that they don’t deserve a good salary, just respect.
