thoroughly disagree with the premise. First, the idea of right-brain /
left-brain has been thoroughly discounted. Second, the author is creating a
false dichotomy. Most technical people are creative and artistic. Both my
brother (Ph.D., chemical engineering) and my son (mechanical engineering) play
jazz guitar. <BR>Lynn<BR></FONT></BLOCKQUOTE></DIV>
<DIV></DIV>I don't know, Lynn. I've known a number of engineers and they all had
tunnel vision, my present boyfriend, a tribology engineer, included. I
don't think it is necessarily a right brain/left brain dichotomy, but rather the
track that the train was running on didn't stop at literary junction.
I think most highly intelligent people are creative, but not necessarily
artistic.<EM>They</EM> are at the top of the food chain, but middle techies
are generally lacking in both creativity and artistic appreciation. </DIV>
