Social Paranoia and Graduate School

Are you paranoid about your social standing and what others’ think of you? Instead of Taming Data, are you Taming Fear?

Then you must be a graduate student, according to Don Troop’s recent article in The Chronicle of Higher Education, “Paranoid? You Must Be a Grad Student“.

Have I had my moments? Yes. Although not as badly as some of the students interviewed in the article. Sometimes, Taming Fear has had to occur before I can Tame Data.

Please let me know what you think....
