Who do you think is your favourite physicist and why?

Mine is Albert Einstein simply because of how different his approach to physics was as conpared to others.
He relied more on thought experiments to find new results rather than explaining results based on available data.

(I hope my post is allowed in this section.If not kindly shift)

James Clerk Maxwell! Because I find electromagnetism to be fascinating, it all comes down to personal choice.
