For today’s Random Data Packet (Pot Luck), we will discuss simply and quickly the mantra of the engineer, the one that every engineer wants every non-engineer in his life to remember when having any sort of interaction with him. Here it is:

Engineers think, they do not feel!

(The exclamation point is even verging on expressing feeling and I am not sure I should have used it, but in order to make the point…)

Please, all non-engineers out there, engineers don’t feel. They don’t want to “share” or talk about feelings. The engineer will discuss logical points on a topic, even if that topic is something like love or relationships. But, keep the feelings out of it.  There are equations for those types of things.

The engineer thinks, he does not feel.

Thank you for remembering.
