Types of PhD students
During your study period you will encounter different types of PhD students each with his own skills and methods in getting work done. Not all the people in research will take the same path to accomplish PhD.
Supervisors challenges are to identify and deal with the following: how students learn, small group teaching, assessment and feedback, and tackling challenging situations.
Some useful guidelines for PhD students:
These people know exactly what are the steps required for the PhD starting from the apparatus required for data collection to how to use the apparatus to the validation stage of the data to finish with a well written PhD thesis.
Can quickly find solutions for complex problems. This can be of great help when he is working on a multidisciplinary field that only a handful number of people now and understand on this planet.
He has the will and scientific foundation to work but needs to acquire the tools to produce results and the methods on writing a good thesis.
These students are always complaining while doing work and you will see them finish with PhD. But the acquire such a behavior in a competitive manner in order to try to convince others that the will not pass and then suddenly they get PhD. The majority of working colleges will figure out their character after 6 months. They always expect others to help them for free. They some times are very friendly and use the method of sweet talk and praising to get you to do their work.
These people use others to get work done in a secretive manner. They will ask other for favors where one will write him a chapter, another will give him some results. You will see them pretending to do work and spend their time browsing internet on the phone and chatting with people on campus while they have assigned some one to write their thesis.
These characters are professional cons, they now exactly how to play the game to satisfy what is required to get a PhD, apart from that they dont know how to study or conduct research or solve problems.
These are the kind where their supervisor ends up doing all their work in order to publish the work that he got funding for. This lucky will end up with a big research group where he can ask people and Post docs and PhD student. When they start the PhD their boss gets a big grant of money and he gets access to some very expensive apparatus.
These are the kinds that every one wants to bully and talk badly with, they are truthful kind and simple in a hostile environment. They start PhD and their funding stops mid of Phd. Their supervisor leaves due to illness after a year of PhD.
These are disgusting characters that use any non moral or ethical method to get to their goals. The will use disgusting methods and are willing to use these methods over and over again with confidence and .
How much they are offered guidance and help they insist that their path of managing their PhD gets them to their objective.
