I would not make a good marine biologist. I am slightly claustrophobic (do not like close places) and would be a danger to myself and others if I tried scuba diving – pretty essential for a marine biologist.
But marine biologists do experiments too. Perhaps you mean a physicist or chemist – I always liked chemistry.
@aeaso2: How about a marine biologist who does experiments? Because most of the marine biologists I know do both lab work and open exploration! There’s lots of fun diving and hanging out on tropical islands and then bringing back samples to the lab to study further.
I love a balance of getting outdoors and also spending time in the office, writing and on social media spreading word of great research. 🙂
I’m very happy doing what I’m doing. Sometimes you go where the work is. I have a mate who mostly did marine biology at uni but is now doing environmental science for a mining company. That’s where the work was in his case, but what he learnt by doing science at uni got him the current job. I have a similar story, where I did synthetic chemistry at uni and ended up in wine science. It was my chemistry knowledge that the employer was looking for.
