So i'm currently a third year doing a Bachelor degree (science), and have learnt my fair share about the uni lifestyle ( of my uni anyway ). I'm not sure about anyone else, but i always seem to get at least one of each of the stereotypic "professors"
First we have the "tries to be cool" type who tries very hard to be cool, but no one thinks is. always trying new things and bringing demonstrations in an effort to engage the audience, with no effect.
Second is the "genius" type, who you can tell have always been the nerd in school, they know anything and everything about their subject, and also really hate it when people talk in the middle of their lectures.
Third is the actual funny one that everyone loves. always sliding in jokes that the audience really does enjoy. these lectures are generally full as the students actually want to come to them.
Fourth is the foreign type, that you totally cannot understand so you don't even bother going to their lectures, and you find when you do, the lectures are almost empty anyway, everyone always complains about these.
Fifth is your normal everyday lecturer who has no noticeable traits, they just deliver their lectures to a satisfactory standard, not good but not bad either.
*also if its a hot chick, everyone instantly loves them.
You also have a blend of these, some of them work, some don't. The genius that you cant understand is a horrible combination, however a funny genius can work quite well.
I'm sure i have left out some of the stereotypes. feel free to comment more and ill add them in.
