What part of this job do you find most the satisfying? Most challenging?
It's rewarding to help people, whether living or dead. Probably the most challenging is dealing with the wealth of misinformation about parapsychology and trying to educate people. Parapsychologists tend to find themselves caught between psi-believers who feel we are too skeptical and psi-disbelievers (AKA "skeptics") who feel we're credulous fools. Neither side tends to give us respect. Working with the media falls into the mixed blessing category. It can be fun but you're never quite sure how it will turn out. Sometimes you get to put some real facts out to the public, though, which makes you feel good.
