Types of scientists
During research it was noted by analysing list of Nobel laureates in chemistry and physics that almost all of them are either Voltaire, Darwin or Lincoln type men. Gradually it was comed to conclusion that Darwin, Lincoln and Voltaire types have different imagination type which allows more complex analysation of complex concepts and coming up with new theoretical models. This imagination type was called theoretical imagination.
Generally individuals of all human types (only Norton type is exception) are currently actively involved in science. Especially Bronson and Ramses types are extremely active but absolute majority of big contributions to scientific breakthroughs are made by Lincoln, Darwin and Voltaire type men. It must be noted that downside of theoretical imagination is disorder of imagination called schizophrenia (Schizophrenia happens to Voltaire and Darwin type men. Lincoln type men do not have imagination disorders or there is no sufficient data) therefore having theoretical imagination is not always advantage.
Ramses, Bronson and Plato types often overcomplicate science by overusing mathematics and complicated language without making big new discoveries or very significant valuebable contributions in scientific fields. It does not mean that Bronson, Plato and Ramses type scientists do not produce valuable contributions in science, but the amount of it is much smaller. On the other hand in language related fields like programming and mathematics Ramses, Bronson and Plato types perform very good because these fields require strong auditory system.
Naturally theoretical imagination itself does not guarantee that a scientist will achieve any significant scientific accomplishment or will come with valid scientific theory. Scientific work requires hard dedication, broad set of knowledge, open mind and continuuos mental fitness.
It must be noted that in East Asian countries (like Japan and China) from time to time there are notions that despite huge investments into the fields of science and education these countries still fall behind western countries in terms of scientific productivity and number of new patents (when compared to such countries like USA or UK). East asian people even sometimes called “less creative” because of this fact but this actually has nothing to do with “lack of creativity” in general population. This happened because in east Asian countries Darwin type minority has literally to carry a burden of scientific research on their shoulders because Voltaire and Lincoln types do not exist in east Asian societies.
It must be noted that without human types with theoretical imagination such rapid industrial revolution that happened in 19th and 20th centuries would have never happened.
