Am stofa de sociolog? / Do I have what it takes as a sociologist ?

Nu ma astept ca sociologii sa cucereasca lumea prea curand insa n-ar fi rau sa fim in numar cat mai mare.
Asa ca azi adresez intrebarea: Ce este un sociolog? O diploma? Un titlu? O persoana? O profesie?

A fi sociolog nu se rezuma la atat. Un sociolog este o persoana care gandeste si actioneaza ca un sociolog. Foarte clar, nu?
Dar cum stiu daca am stofa de sociolog? Ei bine … ai mari sanse sa fii unul daca raspunzi afirmativ la intrebarile de mai jos.

– Sunt curios in privinta lumii
– Sunt fascinat de tot ce inseamna social si societate
– Vreau sa stiu de ce oamenii fac ceea ce fac
– Cred ca societatea este o inventie umana si vreau sa stiu cine, cum si cand a inventat-o
– Ma intreb cine are puterea de a crea normele sociale, regulile si legile
– Refuz sa accept ordinea sociala ca fiind naturala si inerenta
– Imi place sa contest presupunerile
– Pun intrebari si apoi pun si mai multe intrebari
– Nu raman impasibil atunci cand se intampla ceva
– Ascult povestile pe care le spun oamenii
– Colectez si ma bazez pe date in argumentele mele
– Sunt constient ca valorile, credintele si actiunile mele sunt un rezultat al pozitiei mele sociale
– Vreau sa inteleg realitatea din perspectiva altora
– Imi place sa vad imaginea de ansamblu
– Vreau sa transform cunostintele in actiuni
– Vreau sa inteleg sistemele sociale inainte de a incepe lucrul
– Citesc carti de sociologie 🙂

Deci, esti un sociolog?
Ai gasit lucruri care sa te reprezinte? Stiu ca exista multe alte intrebari care ar putea fi puse asa ca le poti adauga.
O sa fii un sociolog pe cinste.

English version

I don’t expect sociologists will take over the world anytime soon but it wouldn’t hurt if there were more of us out there.
So today I’m asking: What is a sociologist? A degree? A title? A person? A job?

Being a sociologist is nothing like that. A sociologist is someone who thinks and acts like one. Very clear, right? But how do I know if I am a sociologist? Well …. you have high chances to be one by starting answering the questions below.

– I am curious about the world
– I am fascinated by all social things
– I want to know why people do the things they do
– I believe that society is a human invention and I want to know who, how and why invented it
– I questions who has the power to create social norms, rules and regulations
– I refuse to accept the social order as natural, inherent
– I love being able to challenge assumptions
– I ask questions and then I ask more
– I do not stay silent when something happens
– I listen to the stories people have to say
– I collect and rely on data to support my arguments
– I’m aware that my values, beliefs and actions are based on my social position
– I want to understand reality from the perspective of others
– I like to see the bigger picture
– I want to transform knowledge into action
– I want to understand the society’s systems before going into work

So, are you a sociologist?
Did you find any things you can relate to? I know many other things are missing from the list so feel free to add your own.
You’re going to be a fine sociologist.
