The CP-Biasing

An MBA really biases you a lot towards putting CP (class participation), no matter where you are. The motivation to get those 10-20% for CP during your MBA make speaking up during a class or a seminar almost second nature. However most of the classes I am taking are in non-business departments like Stats, Econometrics, etc. So I have noticed that it is usually me and a couple of other fellow-post-MBA-doctoral students who do a lion's share of the talking.

Sometimes it just gets embarassing. You can never be sure whether what you are saying is actually a useful contribution or just pure "globe".
