That post is hilarious, and fascinating.
I eat corn like an analyst, vastly prefer Lisp to Haskell, use Vim, identify much more strongly with the personality description of the analyst, and while I haven’t done much higher math, have a deep and abiding love for the delta-epsilon definition of a limit.
Very curious to hear other results, either successful or not.
I eat corn like an analyst, and
[+] did my PhD in a fairly analysis-y field (but also fairly geometrical, contrary to the analysis+algebra/geometry split kinda-implied by the OP here)
[+] prefer Lisp to Haskell but [-] feel vaguely guilty about that from time to time and feel I really “ought” to learn Haskell properly
[+] use Vim but [-] only because Emacs was bad for my wrists
[-] don’t much care for fancy C++ template metaprogramming but [+] also don’t much care for hardcore OO programming, though [-] I don’t by any means object to OO, “design patterns”, etc.
