Would you find it weird if you met an engineer who knows a lot about painting and art history just for fun? What would you think of him?

  • I would think he's a well-learned person.

  • Well, without knowing anything else, I would think he was a well rounded person. People have all sorts of interets that are different from their careers.

  • To the OP, why would it be weird?

  • I think we all have different and varied interests and it is not wierd. If an engineer was only interested in thinking about engineering,talking about engineering and never cared to learn about anything else , wouldn't you think THAT would be wierd? And kinda dumb?

  • He's obviously a Renaissance man--or the reincarnation of Leonardo DaVinci who was also both an engineer and an artist.

  • No, it wouldn't be weird. I've known several enigineers & they all had varied interests.

  • Engineer is a broad spectrum term... My father is a design engineer, my papa is a Train engineer. See what I mean?

    How would that be in any way odd? I have specific knowledge about things which most wouldn't suspect, simply because I enjoy the topic. Ones career path speaks little about who they are as an individual.

  • well from my experiences engineers are all a little odd :D (at least computer engineers haha)

    but no, id find it refreshing that he was interested in more than just his career. maybe at one point in time he wanted to be an artist but changed his mind when he found engineering? i mean how many ppl do you know who arent interested in more than one thing?

  • That would completely describe my oldest child. He loves art. He also loves the way things work. He will become some sort of engineer or architect. Or a perpetual student.

    My SIL is an aerospace engineer, and talk about strange. And she's nothing compared to some of her coworkers.
