I shy away from words like "correct" or "superior" when talking about job
descriptions. What is "correct" or "superior" for one may be incorrect
and inferior for another. Is a good chef superior to good accountant? A
good computer programer superior to a good policeman? And what
constitutes "correct" thought depends entirely on what it is you're
thinking about.

Be careful, Brett. Your biases are showing.
