Please care to tell me about it :).

Selfish search for mathematical truth.

>>7789861
isn't it ego? most people want to be called doctors since they could not really become a real doc?
>>
>>7790125
MDs are the real doctors
Ph.D.s are just memes

>implying anyone respects you if you have a PhD.
Think back to every miserable professor you've ever encountered. Now consider that it's only worse for PhD's working in industry than those working in academia.

Only people who don't go into these programs think that the reason to go into them is ego.

>>7790168
MDs are glorified mechanics and can't into research

I'm getting my PhD becuase I want to better myself and get an awesome career in research, which is the only real reason you should have. also because i love it, and yes in some part because i want the title doctor

>>7791595
what's your field, anon
>>
>>7791779
electrical/computer engineering
>>
>>7790125
That's probably why they get so butthurt when you don't call them doctors in emails
>>
>>7791790
ive never once seen this happen, and i read a lot of emails from engineering PhDs
>>
>>7789861
I don't think I'm able to have a real job. I just want to do academic research and spend my free time taking LSD

Free money for doing nothing.
>>
>>7789861
love of science + a relatively "ok" salary compared to a fulltime job salary where I live
>>
>>7789861
I love teaching, learning, and martial arts; I'd like to do biomechanics research and teach budo eventually.
The whole lecture for 5-10 hours a week then just dick around figuring stuff out thing really appeals to me.
I'd like to be able to apply myself to advancing our species and raising quality of life for folks.

That's the core of it.
