@ajax333221 I doubt you'd get much negative transfer, since numbers are completely different symbols. Though you might find that you read math as words ;)

comment Why have historically most inventors been men?
Men were the layabouts, so we had more time to dream when the womenfolk were out working the fields ;)

Excellent answer, and now I have a term that actually describes what I did. An extra +1 for the da Vinci reference.

comment What is the psychology behind trolling?
I realized (at least for me) that when it comes to the vehicle it's actually seems to dissociation - I see the other drivers on the road as vehicles, not people (in fact I make comments to myself using their make/model). And I feel exceedingly awkward when I have road rage towards "someone" and then I realize I know them personally. I'm not terribly familiar with this area of research, just my own empirical evidence and possibly subjective interpretations. YMMV

comment Does writing something down help memorize it?
On a slightly related note, I wrote a Python flashcard script for testing myself on the Periodic table. I typed, not wrote, and it certainly helped (at least seemed to for me). If I got the element (or name, depending on which way I was testing) wrong, it would be returned to the pile, until the "stack" was empty. That lends weight, for me, to your assertion that the importance is more on testing than simply the act of construction.
