Three of the qualities I have most admired in various scientists with whom I have interacted are intellectual humility, intellectual integrity, and intellectual curiosity. In what follows, I will reflect briefly upon each of these qualities and how important they are for scientific exploration and life.
i don’t agree.
First i don’t agree there are scientists. Its just humans figuring things out.
A scientist can only claim they do a higher standard of investigation before they draw a conclusion and can demand others do likewise.
I see intelligence as the priority trait. Integrity is obvious for all mankind. Humility is for all mankind.
Natural philosophers(scientists) can only say they are different from other people if they figure something out others never knew. How it works/manipulate it to make it work another way.
An evil scientist is a real one while a unaccomplished “scientist” is not a real one.
To have prestige science must have rules. not everyone gets trophy for gaining degress in ones late teens and early twenties.
Its not for them anymore then anyone else. Not about offensiveness. Its about accuracy.
Things vital in scientists should be unique to science. I think thats intelligence. and then intelligence to bring accuarete conclusions. Which is just more intelligence. A few beers might help stimulate imagination however.
