Got an awesome science project for my master, and a very experienced and invested PI.
However, this PI is a bit strange. Strict, and very intimidating. I don't know how to not feel intimiated and treat my PI with confidence, because that's what I think is correct and would make our relationship better. If I need to ask a question, i always seems so difficult to ask without looking like an idiot and leaving an impression of disappointment. It happens every time. MyPI ends up worried I may fuck up the experiment, or seems aggressive, even though I doubt that is the intention. Previous students have told me to look further and ignore the seemingly aggressive interactions, and not be too sensitive, but I have a hard time becoming that student that can answer confidently.
