My girlfriend has a master degree in economics for two years, and I have a Ph.D degree from the Chinese Academy of Sciences for 5 years. Now she is a senior year. She wants to graduate and works. She asked me what is the meaning of Ph.D. if I don’t engage in scientific research, I choked for a while and couldn’t answer. At one time I was full of doubts about my future. This question seemed unsolvable. For me, who is not clear about the future direction.
This happens to be the case for me. When I was still studying for a Ph.D., I was very clear about it. After graduation, I didn’t do pure scientific research, and I knew that I was not that piece of material. The experience of Ph.D. has a big impact on me now, that is really too big… Show up and talk about it. Looking back at the entire Ph.D. stage, what I learned the most is not to post a few papers, nor to get a PhD diploma (although this is also very important). It is the full growth obtained in the following three aspects (1) strict logical thinking (2) the ability to quickly lock key information (3) the ability to withstand stress. This has also laid a solid foundation for my work status and performance in the future. basis. Post a content written in the previous answer: So, it can also be said that the following points are the ones I personally think that I need to train during the PhD period; (1) Strict logical thinking, maybe everyone thinks that this is not everyone can read Is it a necessary talent for PhD students? In fact, I didn’t know how to be a logical ghost. Until I joined my boss’s group, when I first reported on the group meeting, my logic was broken. The daily training of our group is called hypothesis talk, which is actually like the whole group show. What kind of hypothesis is the research direction you choose, and then everyone asks a series of questions around your hypothesis and experimental design. In fact, this is very important, because basically if you want to carry out your project based on this assumption, then the quality of this assumption basically determines the upper limit of your project, or to be more straightforward, what level you can post Of paper. For four years of my Ph.D., the most common thing I heard from my boss is that it is only when you can carry out the next phase of research based on the results regardless of whether the final experimental results support your hypothesis or not. A good hypothesis (in human terms, no matter the result is good or bad, the paper can be posted). Just because of this sentence, my logic has been destroyed for four years, but looking back now, I do find that logic has no upper limit. As long as the destruction continues, it can still be improved. 2) The ability to quickly lock key information, yes, everyone has done this before, just look at the literature. When I first entered the scientific research circle, reading literature was very slow. I like to read word by word from abstract to result. What? You talk about discussion. In fact, I hate reading discussion now, because it is too much brainstorming. I personally feel that my ability to read literature has improved significantly, almost after reading 100 literatures a month or so at a time. It was also forced by my boss, and now I look a little bit frustrated in retrospect. Once I had a meeting with my boss to discuss the progress of the project. He asked me a question. What factors might cause this change? I said environmental factors. He said, OK, let’s not talk now. I will give you one month. If you can only answer the general answer of environmental factors next month, I will let you finish reading the current one in the 2 week class. All documents published in the direction. Well, in order not to delay my entertainment activities such as basketball, LOL, and werewolf, I decided to spend a month to read these damn papers. After a sea shopping, I found that I had downloaded more than 100 articles, then click I used to read the tortoise-speed reading method before, even if I was in a pit, I could not finish reading the literature. So I had no choice but to force myself to turn on the wave reading mode. I remembered that I stipulated that a paper should not exceed 20 minutes, and then I had to close the paper and write the key point of this article in English. Of course, it was very painful at the beginning, but the later I found out that the speed was faster. Of course, the project discussion after a month was smoother, and I found that the skills of reading literature seemed to have entered the next level from then on. In my current job, I actually have to read a lot of information every day, from industry, professional, investment field, oh yes, as well as materials that I need to read to write articles. I found that I benefited a lot from this ability. (3) Compressive ability. In fact, everyone should not be able to run away. It’s just the difference between rubbing on the acupressure plate or rubbing on the concrete floor. The experiment failed. As soon as the experiment result dragged on, the submission was rejected in seconds. These are all training our ability to resist stress. Of course, I have been crushed by a hammer myself, but since working, I have not felt that I can’t handle it. I have encountered difficult situations a few times. Think about the pressure before, the hammer, this is a ball. . Therefore, if you have not been hammered during the Ph.D. period, it must be incomplete, and it is also a pity. What kind of training is complete for a doctoral student,
