Self-loathing and philosophy professors?

Do philosophy profs have a tendency towards self-hate and embarrassment? I'm inclined to think that it's a possibility. This is understandable when one considers that we're talking about the ultimate profession of "intellectuals", yet most would not consider them to be smarter on average than the physics and math professors who are more like "rocket scientists".

I remember talking to one guy - a fisherman - who associated philosophy with poetry.
