Do plants have soul?

I have been wondering this because I have heard that plants get hurt and they make their own food and all. I don't know if that is good question or not...but sometimes you gotta think out of box...

Should professors be distinguished in their field before being offered a position?

Should offers for professorship be based on success in the field they teach in, or based on education/knowledge alone? Does experience factor into a professor's educational worth? #education #college #professor #teaching #philosophy

What majors should I take up in college?

I'm interested in philosophy, psychology and english literature, and I can confidently say I can do well in these fields since its all I've ever been doing since I started to understand the importance and jobs. Although there aren't many good colleges or unis I can find that offer all three subjects as majors, and pose a good opportunity, especially in India. I need your help. #psychology #philosophy #english #literature #english literature #university #college #study #majors #overseasstudiesconsidered

Is it best to chase after your dream or financial stability?

Everyone has that one thing they love to do, but know they probably won't make a lot of money from it though. Is it best to put stability over fun and passion? #philosophy #social-science-phd #social-science #social-sciences #career-counseling #career-choice #finance #business-finance #career-goals #purpose #passions

What should I pursue?

I've always had trouble figuring out who I wanted to be and am always changing what it is that I really want to do. One reason why its so difficult is because I've never found anything that incorporates all my skills and passions because they're just so diverse. To give a bit more insight I love the arts and have acted, drawn, and written books. Most of these things are for fun but I've been told I'm good at them even from actual judges and artists. I also love to talk to people and help others which is why I've wanted to be a therapists (I've also had an experience myself with depression and feel that my experience helps me connect to others). I've been told that I'm a comforting person but then I've also been told I'm a strong speaker from people I'm very close with and know me best. I love to learn about philosophy and history as well as justice which has lead many to believe I should be a social justice lawyer. I'm in high school now and it's so much more frustrating because I don't want to flip flop when I'm in college but I don't know what to do. I know all these things about myself and yet at the same time there's so much I don't. Does anybody have any resources or recommendations into things I should look into. I don't need exact answers but even directing me to a website/ book would really help! #art #philosophy #law #college-counseling #career-counseling

How should I figure out my major?

I've never known what I wanted to do or pursue career wise. I took psychology and sociology in my first year and a half at college, and I liked them, but I don't know what exactly I want to major in. I wouldn't mind studying more into sociology but I also want a career with a pretty decent earning as well. I detest any mathematics, but I am quite fond of English, writing, history, sociology, psychology, communications, and philosophy. Quite a lot, I know, but those are the only classes I've taken that I'm interested in. I just want to find my path and what I like before I waste my money and time on other classes that won't benefit me. #psychology #career-counseling #communications #writing #english #sociology #history #philosophy #undecided #college

What is the most important thing you want to get out of your life?

I guess if you rephrase the question it could be; what is the purpose of life? Why do we do what we do.. #career #philosophy

Action drives us to push our limits and to grow. What are a couple things that I can take action on today to challenge myself and grow?

More of a philosophy question :) There are so many quotes about this concept "action": “Never complain, never explain, just let your actions speak for themselves.” – Benjamin Disraeli “The Superior man is modest in speech but exceeds in his actions.” – Confucius “There are no statues built to those who lived lives of mediocrity, and on the tomb of NO heroes will you find the words, he played it safe” – John Romaniello “Fortune sides with him who dares.” – Virgil “No man is more unhappy that he who never faces adversity. For he is not permitted to prove himself.” – Seneca There is something special behind it, and because I lack experience at 19-years-old, I wanted to ask you all what you have done in your life to challenge yourself through action? #business #leadership #philosophy #books #personal-development #growth

As an aspiring leader and entrepreneur, what are three books I must read?

I am 19 years old at university. This summer I've immersed myself in a variety of texts ranging from philosophy to leadership advice. I still am, however, looking for that one book to spark a certain inspiration. If you have any book recommendations, I would love to hear it. #entrepreneurship #leadership #philosophy #books #reading #recommendation
