Being a Scientist is ...

Remember the famous story...
"The Emperor's New Clothes"?
It is a short tale by Hans Christian Andersen about two weavers who promise an Emperor a new suit of clothes invisible to those unfit for their positions or incompetent. When the Emperor parades before his subjects in his new clothes, a child cries out, "But he isn't wearing anything at all!"
Kids can tell the truth!
So some experiment was done. See what they have to say...

My scientist is a very good man. He is very smart and went to school for many years. He is somewhat of a workaholic. . . . He never got into sports as a child; he was always trying to get his straight A grades even higher.I realized that scientists aren't very different from everyone else. . . . They are very smart. As children, they had very good grades. Mostly A's. . . . Their strong subjects were math and science.
