I like what Heidi said. I definitely have seen some examples of anchoring bias as well in my own line of work. One of the things we do with hydrologic models is to re-calibrate them as more data becomes available to us. It is not uncommon for clients to be surprised and confused when this additional ...

Thanks Heidi! I love all of these examples and memories. It looks like you picked up on the fundamentals a little bit earlier than I did! ------------------------------ Christopher Seigel P.E., M.ASCE Civil Engineer ------------------------------

A phrase I think we have all heard a variation on by now is "Always be kind. Everybody you meet is fighting some kind of battle that you know nothing about." I think this is a great question because it already shows that you care about your co-workers. If we are going to assume that "everyone we interact ...

I once had a geotechnical internship where the contractor was digging footings in South Philadelphia. They dug down deep enough that brickwork from an old abandoned basement started to be seen and soon started adding bricks into the trench. I also remember seeing a few glass bottles, which must have ...

While growing up, my parents' house had a pool. I didn't realize it as a teenager, but it was an interesting introduction to the world of fluid mechanics: When it was raining outside, and the pool was about to overflow, my dad and I would go out to drain it. We did this by filling a hose with water, ...

I was a Lego kid too. I don't know if the building aspect drew me to civil engineering, but I think it definitely led me into the general direction of "science" and "water".  I was obsessed with any boat or submarine-style build, and definitely spent the most time playing with those sets. I even took ...

It sounds like you are following all of the steps that you can in advance of these meetings already by trying to anticipate certain types of questions. Hopefully, as you gain more experience, you will encounter the same type of question over and over and inherently develop a list of answers that you ...
