Question: What is the internal motivation of you
The reason I am an investigative scientist is because I am incredibly nosy. Not just curious, plain nosy!
I have to find things out. I need to know why things happen and what things mean, what objects are and if I don’t know an answer I will go and find out. Apparently it’s a good thing for my job, not so good when you meet a shop assistant called “Asdis” and you just have to know what their name means….(It’s icelandic for Goddess…).
I am incredibly lucky that I have a job where I get to work with chemists who make totally and utterly new molecules. This means I get to be the first person EVER to see what colours they produce when you shine UV light on them. It’s then up to me to work out why.
