I guess one of the problems in dealing with academics is intellectual hubris.  Somedays, you just cannot get past hubris—-especially when talking to people about research areas that are close to, but not equal to, their research areas.

But a successful researcher needs to have hubris.  Otherwise the researcher won’t start on new projects in new areas.  And I think that is where the intellectual growth occurs.  So its a bit of a conumdrum.



(I think there’s a punctuation problem with the final part of the second sentence.  I not sure, though.)
