Fearing that you might say the wrong thing, you explain your research to your family the same way you would talk to your advisor. You don’t leave out any details and you ensure all of your terminology is correct. You even start talking about all of the different analyzing functions you’ve been utilizing for accuracy when defining your signals and how each has been performing and time and frequency resolution. Luckily you just had a committee meeting where you had to explain all this stuff to a new member last week.
After about twenty minutes, you notice a blank stare creep onto all of your family’s faces, you can’t tell if they’re understanding what you’re talking about, if they’re using all their mental capacity to follow, or if they’re blanking out and just waiting for you to quit talking.
What do you do?
