Can't relax. This is styleforum.

 

Just to be clear, I'm saying you should increase the measurements in the body to make the fit look more relaxed. A linen shirt should not look like it is just a half step this side of a corset. :)

Be passionate about it. Be prepared to deal with days/weeks/months when you wish the topic would go F itself. Don't worry about jobs (yes, most PhD prospects are not brilliant). Be excited about the day you get awarded it making you suddenly 900 times smarter to everyone else....it's amazing how much more people listen when you're DOCTOR Whomever than Mister Whomever.

Good luck.

For what it's worth, and it's probably just me, but I am tremendously annoyed by people outside of the medical field who introduce themselves as doctors.

 

Note: it is entirely probable that this is because I know a pretty good amount of PhDs who I find to be insufferable idiots.

Shots fired.  Both lexically and historically, PhDs are the original doctors.  We held that title when surgeons were still glorified barbers. 

[Full disclosure: I have never introduced myself as "doctor."]

I seem to recall that "Doctor" was an honorific that was historically awarded to distinguished academics that were the forefathers of today's professors and was used by doctors later. I too know a fair amount of PhDs who are insufferable idiots, though, so I empathise (I should in fairness note that I know a fair amount of MBAs, JDs and elite undergraduate school alums who are insufferable idiots). Don't get me started on lawyers who use "Esq." outside of professional settings or anyone who puts "MBA" after their name.

You beat me to the history. I think the bracketed text here is key, though. Egoists and people who insist on fancy titles are things I've grown less patient with as I've aged. I don't mind using the titles, but there's something grating about someone who insists.

Boy, I wish I have that body. What are you, like drop 12?

Shirt looks good IMHO, maybe shorten the sleeves.

Doctor, or short for Doctor of Science (or Philosophy...). I haven't heard of PhD until I started dealing with Anglo-world. Where I come from, you get to put Dr in front of your name.

[Being a black sheep in the family full of university professors, hence Doctors, mostly engineers of all sorts. My wife is another black sheep, she is a Doctor, but medical...]

It's still that way in much of the world.  In the German-speaking world a medical doctor is a physician.  If you ask for a doctor you'll get someone like me.

 

Regrettably only the first type is allowed to charge for, say, breast exams.  Helden and I can only do those for free.

 

Cheers,

I should add that in the most formal settings in the German-speaking world someone with two Ph.D.s will still be introduced as "Doctor Doctor."  If a man also was a professor he'd be "Herr Doctor Doctor Professor."

 

Getting uptight about such formalities is, in my experience, mostly a North American thing.

 

Cheers,

Great advice. Thanks. I joke with my spouse that the only reason I want to get a PhD is so that I can make some outrageous claims about how we were put here by aliens and Art Bell will introduce me as DOCTOR, so that means I must be right!

A good amount of PhDs ARE insufferable idiots. Expertise does not necessarily imply intelligence. FWIW I have no desire to go around calling myself doctor, despite my tongue-in-cheek reply to @WhereNext.

I remember some years ago requesting a written professional recommendation from an English gentleman, highly accomplished in his field.

The letter was intended for a Continental audience, so he signed it "Herr Professor Doktor Doktor xxx".

He showed it to me, winked, and said archly, "they love this kind of stuff."
