Shifting From Physics to Applied Social Sciences
April 19, 2013
A pleasure to talk with you and good conversation yesterday.
As I was going through the career fields, it was very interesting to see those that intersected [with my mix of aptitudes] are subject areas I’ve been exploring — social entrepreneurship, holistic medicine, yoga, dance, sustainability, video game design, evolutionary psychology, life coaching, new urbanism, and venture capitalism. All areas I’ve been interested in since learning about them.
It is also interesting that those areas I’ve “done” already (physics, astrophysics, philosophy) that are more technical in nature are represented. The best way I can describe it is that I’m shifting from technology/high-tech/sciences as a “thing” to learn and go into more of a supporting set of skills and understanding. Now, I’m looking to apply those [hard sciences] to other areas.
