The analysis of Danish psychology students’ Master’s thesis projects, focusing on their methodological approaches showed a discrepancy of their interest and the predominance of mainstream quantitative approach published in psychology journals. The interest of Danish psychology students in qualitative methodologies indicate that there is a social normativity guiding the choice of research methods (Szulevicz et al., 2021) This paper focus on the academic rites and myths that usually homogenize the reflections and actions of the weird people who attends the university. It is argued that from the rites and myths that shapes the academic environment, the researcher develops an affective availability to select aspects of the experience to reflect on. The preparation of the project depends on the methodological choices and adjustments, making the reflected experience intelligible to the academic audience, invited to criticize the ongoing work and when it is finished. Categories addressing the qualities of psychological experience are proposed opening paths for possible future researches on the topic.
