Engineer or scientist?

Engineer or scientist? The characteristics and background factors were compared between 110 Ss with engineering and 164 Ss with science as vocational choices. All Ss were honor winners of The Science Talent Search of 1952 and 1953. A comparable group of college students, "selected for its generality," was used for comparison.

Engineer or scientist?

Abstract

The characteristics and background factors were compared between 110 Ss with engineering and 164 Ss with science as vocational choices. All Ss were honor winners of The Science Talent Search of 1952 and 1953. A comparable group of college students, "selected for its generality," was used for comparison. "The future engineers accept social opportunities and responsibilities." They like to work with their hands, be with people and be of service to them. "The future scientists did not enjoy the company of people in work or play." Complexity was preferred to simplicity. They preferred solitary, intellectual activities, and "chose a scientific career to satisfy curiosity and to meet the needs of humanity." From Psyc Abstracts 36:04:4KD79M.
