Ability to get a Recommendation letter / other career success often requires good perception by teachers. But when a large number of professors aren't very insightful, they tend to prioritise traits like politeness, diplomacy and sociability. In other hand, there are a little number of students seem to excruciatingly truthful but they appear to be very restless, clumsy, noisy, struggling with studies, yet hyperfocused into a topic, and can be bluntly direct, may be unable to 'read in between the lines', may not recognise professor's tone or body language, may interrupt within talk. (Maybe this is undiagnosed ADHD or some other kind of behavioural disorders). In such cases; especially when the student doesn't have a medical diagnosis; what should be ideally the perception of the student in Academic community?
And if not ideally; how does the present academia see such deviant or divergent behaviours?
In my locale, in several universities this kind of 'divergent' behaviour is seen as wilfull disrespect to the authority, indiscipline, bad manners, rulebreaker, untrustworthy or dangerous; and in my life I haven't seen anysuch student is being practically selected for independent research work in good places.
