Have you all gone looney? All wrapped up in your panties over whether to call a Dr. a Dr.? What the hell is gong on? We are majoring in the sub minor's these days. Another example: all the bullshit about DR. Ben Carson. BLAH BLAH BLAH!!! For Christ's Sake! The Guy is a humble mastermind!

I really do think it's the whole public interaction aspect. People likely know more "doctors" than they realize.

Whenever you see some research paper or study quoting lead scientists, those scientists are almost always PhDs but nobody takes note of it, probably because the scientists themselves don't think to make note of it when being interviewed.

Mrs VA used to insist on me self-identifying as "Dr." on anything going to our kids' schools, to anyone in government, etc because she felt it would result in my opinion, question or complaint being taken more seriously. Unless I was writing about chemistry or something I never wanted to do so.

Well, one could make the case that a medical doctor, psychologist, etc. Is a technician, while a Ph.D. is more well rounded, and therefore more deserving of the honorific Dr.

That's funny. My phone autocorrected honorific to house orifice.

When I get my Ph.D.. all you people who call me an ass hole will have to refer to me as Dr. Asshole...

"I acknowledge hard work and achievement."

In that case I expect you will be referring to me as "Dr. VA" from now on.

It has been my experience that the only professionals that typically are or wish to be routinely called "Doctor" are those who deal with the public in their professional capacity - medical doctors, psychologists, dentists, etc. and usually college professors (who would typically have the same credentials I do).

MDs (or any "doctors") who want to be called "Dr" outside of formal or professional context are pretentious douchebags IMO. I had one once (I met him in the crowd at a baseball game) correct me when I referred to him by his first name. I then corrected him when he referred to me by mine. He looked offended and said he'd have to see my degree before he'd do so. Wtf! He then also said that PhDs are not "real" doctoral degrees.

Dickhead.

Btw - this has nothing to do with Carson himself. It's everyone else calling him this.

"They have a policy of not calling anyone doctor unless it is a medical degree... "

I have the same policy, unless it's in a formal setting.

Always fighting the last war...

When I get my doctorate (within the year), I really don't care if people use it or not.

Interestingly, our Provost was profiled in the Chronicle of Higher Education. They have a policy of not calling anyone doctor unless it is a medical degree...

@VA: As you said, that's your personal pet peeve shit. I acknowledge hard work and achievement. Others who don't, not saying you, are probably haters or as Jay-Z says tells you "how to do it "but never did it."
