Those 2 traits often go together and frequently are associated with left handedness.
Makes sense to me, I’ve got both traits. But I guess I was remembering back in high school there was a clear segregation between the two. People who couldn’t cut it academically were nudged toward the art classes, people who were good at math and science were labelled “geeks” and told not to waste their time with art. I got weird looks from both groups, because I can’t pick up on boundaries like that unless they’re spelled out for me. It wasn’t until the end of senior year that someone told me I wasn’t supposed to enjoy my pottery class because I was too good at math and science.
Then again, I sometimes think I fit the stereotype of the mad scientist :p
