If anything, I’d say that I am more of a fan of Engineering than necessarily an Engineer.

Also, I will find Structure by JE Gordon and Engineering and the Mind’s Eye by Eugene Fergusen.
It has been a difficult area to find reading materials in.

If anything, I’d say that I am more of a fan of Engineering than necessarily an Engineer. Since I was a boy, I see things happening and try to visualize how they work. Usually ends up being little and big triangles moving about in loops, picking up stuff, moving things, depositing them to be taken over by other triangles to move things to the next stage.

I see the same patterns when working with data, or looking at a building wondering where its weak spots would be, or trying to decipher what’s happening inside of me when I take a vitamin and learn something about its chemistry. I’m just wired strange that’s all :) I have more of a need to understand and visualize; I tackled a working mental model of car engines a year ago (one which I avoided for life but now have gained a great appreciation for car mechanics, especially those who can listen and hear problems; I’ve always had that ability with computers (I could hear when a hard drive was failing, or a screen was about to go or the innards are dusty. But that’s being cursed with musical pitch; mechanics that are out of sync are like nails on a chalkboard)

It’s a mostly useless trick anyway. I never could see where mentally visualizing systems could come in handy, although I use it when I have to deal with someone’s issue and fix it.
