To scientists sophistication, repeatability, independent confirmations, accuracy, theoretical coherence, and robustness under criticism are all attributes taken to point towards personal respect, affirmations, and acceptability which they yearn for, because they have not had a fair share of them. Yet scientists are not free to understand their motivations, because such understanding requires reflexivity which (under their paradigm of complete objectivity) is taboo. To learn scientific concepts well requires making positive affective associations with scientific concepts within the secure/positive affective contexts wherein the instruction and study take place. Scientists are not trained to provide such secure/positive affective contexts, and so scientists train future generations in ways which leaves future scientists untrained to provide the kinds of secure/affective contexts which are essential to learning scientific concepts well.
