Huh?

Posted 10 years ago by Adam Gautsch

Visiting Spiro Center scholar, Ms. Suna Sorensen's research uses symbolic interactionistic and narrative methodologies to investigate the pre-organizational experiences of student entrepreneurs. -- I have no idea what that means. In fact, if someone can explain that to me in 10 words or less Evan will shave his head.

Your primitive language makes that task impossible. Will 12 words get Bear to shave his head?

(She uses Jungian-based models to divine why some people become entrepreneurs.)

Can you dumb it down a little bit more for me?

She finds out what drives some people to become entrepreneurs.

Narrative methodologies: A mix of interviews and "tell me a story" type interactions with her subjects.

Symbolic Interactions deal more with archetypes and the subjects' conscious and subconscious relationship with role models, and concepts like success, personal achievement, fear of failure, etc.

Ms. Suna Sorensen needs to take marketing, writing, and professional communications classes while visiting Clemson. You know, "consider your audience" and all that stuff. Might make the descriptions of her research more accessible.

What do fancy chefs and PHd candidates have in common? The both use as many and as fancy a words as possible to describe what they are doing. This is marketing to them.

That's how you get
Grilled Pork Tenderloin a la Rodriguez with Guava Glaze and Orange-Habanero Mojo instead of pork tenderloin.

And that's how you get "symbolic interactionistic and narrative methodologies to investigate the pre-organizational experiences of student entrepreneurs" instead of She finds out what drives some people to become entrepreneurs.
