Studies on Self-Destructive Intelligence Syndrome on Indian Agricultural Scientists
Data of eighty-nine Principal Scientists of Indian Council of Agricultural Research were generated on research contribution, professional exposure and professional experience with respect to ‘self – destructive intelligence syndrome’(SDIS). Indian agricultural with low, moderate, high and very high Professional Experience were found to be equally or similarly vulnerable to the SDIS. About 33.7% of the scientists were at a satisfactory level and they were advised to maintain it, while about 66.3% of the scientists were vulnerable towards SDIS and they were advised to take steps to increase feedback, self awareness and contact with the real world. Around 11% of the Indian Agricultural Scientists had the SDIS virus far advanced and were leading for a big self-induced problem. Ten scientists were found to be very highly vulnerable and 49 scientists were found to be vulnerable to SDIS virus. They were involved in general administration along with research and enjoyed the privilege of power and prestige at par with other administrative services. SDIS attacks only those professionals who are at the top of their respective professions and are entitled to make decisions on their own, Indian Agricultural Scientists also fall in this category of being at the top of their professions and they possess full authority to take decisions.
