One of the things about academic jobs is that you need to be a good caretaking type. I am not interested in this and would not go into it professionally but I can see that people who are interested in geriatric care, care of disabled children, and so on, are people better suited to most academic jobs than I.
You cannot be intellectually oriented or research oriented primarily. You need those skills, and you need to follow advice books to force yourself to use them sometimes, but mostly you need to be oriented toward butler type services and care of the disabled. Then you perform the kinds of tasks required with joy.
Furthermore, if you are a good, traditional wife type of person then you will not have difficulty with chairs, directors, or administrators.
