i totally relate to this thread, it's been bugging my whole work life thus far (only 5 years, granted). It's the reason I quit my job and am now trying to get into something humanitarian/ development based. what are you up to you now? did you decide to change from comp sci?
Yeah, I do. I don't really know what emotional maturity would entail, exactly... something along the lines of being able to withstand rejection, and being comfortable enough with yourself that you feel ok opening up to someone. I guess we can do a lot of growing up in short amount of time!
I used to be a research assistant (slightly more of an intellectual job than a mere technician) but now I'm a lab supervisor meaning I don't do any science... not because I'm not allowed to do science but because the administrative stuff takes up too much of my time still.
I think that makes sense. I've done a lot of observing, even if I haven't used certain social skills personally. I've seen what works and what doesn't, like a fly on the wall. And goodness knows I'm becoming misanthropic. It's quite bad, actually.
