Intimidating professors Sexchat online for free no sign ups or payments
Fifty percent of survey respondents also said they felt intimidated by classmates when sharing different or unpopular beliefs.
The vast majority (95 percent) of students surveyed said that the issue of free speech is “important” to them, and 87 percent agree that listening to those with whom they disagree has educational value.
The way to solve this is to have more communication with that person and after all realize that he is a regular human being, who sometimes in the past used to be a student, and most probably was intimidated by his guide.
As you get to talk interact with your guide the Myth that you have in your head about him/her will start to get into the frames of normality, and the intimidation will go away after a while.
Whenever I meet my advisor and interact with him, in class or otherwise, I can't help feeling intimidated. (I am an undergrad and just beginning research.) Who is your "guide" - a teacher, TA, someone else? Does he always say that you should know more than you do? Assuming s/he's a very smart person and just making you nervous because of the intellectual gap (and not because s/he is a jerk), my advise is to go with it and learn from it: (1) think before you speak; (2) come prepared; (3) don't be afraid to admit you don't know; (4) don't fake it.
I feel scared of the fact that I may fall below his expectations, and I become tongue-tied and mind frozen even though I know stuff. I think this is a typical syndrome for young students, or those students who have massive respect for their Professors or Teachers.
But to a person, they remembered me, respected me, and helped me get into graduate school because they saw that I cared enough to read over their lecture notes, the text books, and to write down good questions to bring them to their office hours.
Confidence comes with time, sometimes not until graduate school or you are a professsional in your field, frankly.
Usually the students consider their Professors to be superior to them; In addition to this the student might have some expectations in the future from that guide, trying to impress him all the time, so he is rewarded later on.I agree with the answer by Kristof, just to expand on their suggestion to get to know the person.I would take extensive notes in class, read the book, and come up with a lot of questions.Another thing which I though of when using dependency was the hope of getting a position under the given Professor.That is a dependency as well because ultimately it is up to his will to decide whether he want to accept you in his research group or not I am also facing similar problems and agree it has a large cultural spin to it.
