Malcolm Gladwell
“..... it would be interesting to find out what goes on in that moment when someone looks at you and draws all sorts of conclusions.”
Malcolm Gladwell

Neil deGrasse Tyson
“But you can’t be a scientist if you’re uncomfortable with ignorance, because scientists live at the boundary between what is known and unknown in the cosmos. This is very different from the way journalists portray us. So many articles begin, “Scientists now have to go back to the drawing board.” It’s as though we’re sitting in our offices, feet up on our desks—masters of the universe—and suddenly say, “Oops, somebody discovered something!”

No. We’re always at the drawing board. If you’re not at the drawing board, you’re not making discoveries. You’re not a scientist; you’re something else. The public, on the other hand, seems to demand conclusive explanations as they leap without hesitation from statements of abject ignorance to statements of absolute certainty.”
Neil deGrasse Tyson, Space Chronicles: Facing the Ultimate Frontier
