Yeah... My buddy is doing his master's in philosophy and is moving onto PhD now....
His brain is great at philosophy, and very little else. Good friend, but only knows how to talk about one thing.
Also it's funny that anyone with a PhD firmly and unflinchingly believes their area of study is the solution to every problem known to man.
Philosophy is I'd say interesting 10% of the time, and the epitome of an internet argument 90% of the time. Quotes, not understanding what the other person means, and no solution to anything.
I'm pretty sure the vast majority of PhD-holders do not think their area of study is the solution to every problem known to man lol
Real philosophy, done by smart people, is incredibly fun. The problem is that many 'philosophers' are not smart, they're only clever, so they play word games, and not the fun sort, which can be dull.

Eh, typical PhD imo. Can't think of one of my professors or any of my friends with PhDs who didn't/don't love the incessant sound of their own ideas, lol.
When one devotes so much of their life to one thing, I would certainly hope they would love it.
