I forcefully agree. Programming, although this may seem surprising to many, is far more about verbal than mathematical skill. It is computer sciene (of which Dijkstra said that it “is no more about computers than astronomy is about telescopes”) which requires a mathematical mindset. And obviously, both directions require great analytical skills.
