  • Someone serious, diligent and perhaps reserved, if they’re younger they will play a lot of video games. This is just my personal experience but most of the ones I’ve met were kind and interesting people.

  • I’m an engineer. I have no awareness of my own demeanor. But people that meet me for the first time, know almost immediately.

  • Smart. Methodical. Sometimes boring but not always. I had an engineer friend in college that funny and fun to be with.

      • Engineers are just weird. My dad has always told me that. And now that I’m an adult, I couldn’t agree more.

        I live in a very big military area so a lot of people are engineers. My buddy is getting out of the navy as a nuclear engineer in January. I’ll just miss him.

  • I dunno, I guess I would think of an engineer as being good at math, as well as kinda awkward, and dorky.

  • Everytime I hear someones a mechanical engineer I think of a friend of mine that I worked with out of highschool and he went to college for the first time at 26 and is now a engineer at our company. Idk if he is ever busy but when I see him at work hes always just sitting around talking. Every now and then you'll see him staring at a machine. Seems like a laid back gig.
