Re: Any BAS Communications Managers on the forum
It's a difficult one to explain flighter, I think if you have wintered in Antarctica it's obvious but if you haven't it's not.
You need to feel comfortable in your own skin and not need others to validate you. Antarctica is not a place for the emotionally "needy" or those who expect others to "reflect" themselves back.
You will make some very close relationships with people who you work with who normally you wouldn't spend time with outside of the work environment and so could compartmentalize out of your private life. There are few or no boundaries, if you find this difficult then Antarctica is not for you.
(when I say "you" I mean anyone - not you personally).
