There's an enormous amount of self-congratulation on how enlightened the Society is here. I found that ironic, because the classic square-jawed blundering pulp archaeologist like Indiana Jones would be immediately accepted into the Society, but more "realistic" anthropologists and archaeologists would be summarily excluded. Getting up there in years and not quite as spry as you used to be (Dexterity of 9)?--BANNED! A sickly child who turned to the excitement of books and history, only to eventually become a (mildly frail) scholar (Constitution of 9)?--BANNED! A brilliant anthropologist who is seen by her peers as a bit too egotistical and dismissive of other's theories (Charisma of 9)?--BANNED! The classic absent-minded professor who's spent a bit too much time reading ancient runes to notice the world around him (Wisdom of 9)?--BANNED!
In my head-canon conspiracy theory, the Starfinder Society has been taken over by Azlanti deep-cover agents to further a vision where anyone below average is deemed "inferior" and barred from meaningful roles in society :)
