Yes @enough . Egos aside, I heard something interesting once, that doctors for example who are kinesthetic learners often entered hands-on fields like surgery, visual learners areas like radiology (x-ray analysis), and auditory learners (the best listeners of their patients) were usually GI/ Internal Med. So between beliefs, past practices, keeping up with info, bias, and then relationship or relating to the patient there's a lot of variables. At least 3 of us (if not 4) ended up with a genetic disorder not even recognized 20 years ago. They call people with it 'zebras' (rare), but I don't think it's quite as rare as they think, just not recognized. Another brilliant doctor would not approve a drug for my dad's eyes, said he'd seen too much quackery, he got it through a friend in the US, came back in 6 months and the Dr said it's a miracle, halted further progression of what had been spontaneous blindness. They told the truth and the Dr retired, though they said please don't, but he would only do cataracts, said he shouldn't have missed it.
