So I was letting my mind wander freely for a moment and I thought about something. Amongst all of my friends I am the most frank. I always say whats on my mind, and I'm not afraid to tell someone the truth, even if it might hurt. I attribute this to being in science. It's just our way of noting observations and facts. "The ball is blue", "The sun is bright", "My genitals are excited". Most of my other friends are outside the realm of science. My 2 best friends for example are in business and finance. They're usually fairly reserved when it comes to observations. Both my parents for example are in science. My mom does cancer research, and my dad is a clinical chemist. Anytime we go out somewhere to eat or whatnot, immediately either of them will not be afraid to pop up with something like "This food is cold, the waiter is an idiot" etc. as the case may be. What do you guys think? Is being frank a characteristic of being a scientist?
