There is a lot of overlap between the physical sciences and Engineering. They both want to know how things work. What is the mindset/philosophy/clues that allows one to know that they are more well suited to become one instead of the other? I know internships/classes/projects/other methods of exposure allow one to know, but I'm just saying mindset/philosophy wise, what are some clues? For example, could it be that one is more suitable to become a scientist is he wants to know how and more suitable for engineering is he wants to know how to? Is the desire to build a prereq for Engineering? Is Engineering suitable for those who DON'T want to build but love to know how things work? Does the Engineer want to know how things just for the sake of building, and the scientist wants to know how things for the sake of quench curiosity?
