Bits, ink, particles, and words.
I am a physics student, which roughly means I’m someone who writes down a lot of equations and tries to analyze systems in terms of their fundamental constituents. This is a comfortable space for me. I am good at what I do, and I fit in.
Speak with any master, they can tell you a ton about their craft. They are capable of going into incredible depth about details that you did not even know existed. They have so much experience that these details jump out to them and are obvious.
When I was in secondary school, I was given a table listing the various properties of polygons. It had a column for the number of sides the shape had, the name of the shape, the value of one interior angle, and the sum of the interior angles. This was a chart that most of us copied onto our memory aid, and we didn’t think about it more than that.
As a student, I see a ton of different work styles. Some people enjoy working near a deadline because it gives them a sense of urgency. Others like myself do things way in advance because they don’t want to stress about due dates.
