When you work or live on a ship, you will probably find many scenes where you feel unreasonable or unreasonable. When I was a student, I was once scolded by Skipper S (from Hokkaido University Faculty of Fisheries Sciences) of a research vessel, saying, "Your master, Professor U (one year younger than Captain at Hokkaido University Faculty of Fisheries Sciences) used to be troubled by Oxxxxx!"(The captain didn't mean to scold him, but just tried to communicate. At that time, I, a weak-tempered person, was in the mood of being scolded.)
Of course, it is unreasonable, but I have to accept "Hi, take care of it from now on???" in a straightforward manner. It is natural to respect older people on ships.
Also, you will be scolded if you don't gather five minutes before the set time. Which was the meeting time for me at that time? Not funny!? I thought. (Everyone will think so) I understand that the set time is the start time of work.
In addition, there will be a lot. It seems to be meaningful, and indeed it is a meaningless rule. Even when young people with footwear feel unreasonable or unreasonable, it is important (I think) to acquire tolerance that is naturally acceptable through the life of the ship. It is because you will encounter an unreasonable scene when you come to society, and you have to overcome it. Of course, you must also remember to express your opinions properly, to carefully assert yourself, and to coordinate with the opinions of the other party. I hope that students will learn about this kind of thing as well through their onboard practical training.
On the other hand, I think those who pursue rational ways of life and those who want to express their correct opinions at all costs are not suitable for a ship life. My best friend, S, is such a rational and self-assertive person, so when I saw his research on the ship, I moved from the world of oceanography to the world of atmospheric science. Oceanography seems to be a ship-like man, and atmospheric science seems to be a gathering of people who don't ship-like. (Of course, there are many rational and cool researchers in oceanography.)
A sailor-like young man! Welcome to the world of oceanography.
