in thread So it's homework - so what?

You can't be a good engineer and stick only to one practice.
Well, yeah, I agree with your update... though I can't say I agree with your assumption that these engineers were each using one practice. Actually, that was sortof my point... two and three were both able to combine theoretical and experimental approaches to ensure they had they right answer. Those two know they have the right answer. The first and fourth gave an answer, without having direct knowledge of if it was correct. They simply had a belief, an "assumption," that it was correct.

Is a person really seperate from their practices?

    ...combine theoretical and experimental approaches to ensure they ...

    Not number 3, number 2 yes, but not number 3.

    Is a person really seperate from their practices?

    Yes, and in color too!!! That's an entirely different discussion. Practices don't always follow beliefs... it's hard to deduce beliefs from practices ... and separate a person from the bunch ... what defines a person?

    update: There *is* no mention of the knowledge of theory behind the mojo for the 3rd engineer, he just did the experiment.

      I certainly didn't mean it in some philosophical abstract regarding their personal life...

      I meant that, who a person is professionaly. Is that seperate from their acts as a professional? I would hope it is not... if so, sounds like office politics, rather than engineering.
