Professor style

This is an old revision of this page, as edited by Applepie (Talk | contribs) at 18:23, 17 May 2008. It may differ significantly from current revision.

Professor style, or professorial style, consists of personality traits that develop in typically conservative professors over time. These can include:

  • a refusal to admit what is not known
  • the ability to speak in self-contradiction without any hint of concern or correction
  • a willingness to bully and intimidate some vulnerable students who are trying to learn - often, the reason behind the bullying is because of differing opinions.
  • extreme laziness, such as working the equivalent of only part-time for only part of the year
  • an obsession with academic and racial pedigree, often inflated
  • complete embrace of sexism
  • astoundingly bitter disputes with colleagues which can include a refusal to talk with a peer and petty grudges lasting years
