I probably won't go into research although I love science due to this.

I have some pretty bad sensory issues especially when stressed and a deficiency which often make me tired. I can't really "compete" and this competition is so fetishised in science despite being counter-productive!

I feel like I could've had a contribution to science if I could work in that field. Maybe I wouldn't do as many experiments as someone who is able to work 8+ hours a day, but every little bit counts! If less people were scared away or just straight out barred from research due to this demand, we could've cooperated into discovering so much together.

@starrycosmos yep! I am 99.9999% sure that the fetishisation of competition is a capitalism thing considering cooperation is better in vast majority of cases. Especially in science!
