"How dreadful!" cried Lord Henry. "I can stand brute force, but brute reason is quite unbearable. There is something unfair about its use. It is hitting below the intellect." ~ Oscar Wilde - The picture of Dorian Gray
I started out studying chemistry in preparation for medicine. I got bored with the lab work and changed my studies to politics and french language. I have since developed a sort of disdain for scientists, who (and this is probably a stereotype) in my own words often "just don't get it."
I always thought it was the NT's that were drawn to science.

I think science require both the Ns and the Ss. The Ss tend to act as the empiricists whom are needed to prove the concepts to be true through trial and error experimentation. I do know a few STs in the sciences, but as a general rule I have observed NTs going in that direction.
