    Definitely “other”

    Nobody would ever guess because it’s not on the standard menu. I work with (not for) the U.S. Air Force but my project funding comes from the U.S. Navy. It’s kind of tough to explain but the USAF employs a network of savants to work in areas that are “off limits” to mainstream society. We’re the “creative” branch of the U.S. special forces :)

    You don’t have to be rich to afford a really nice guitar. In fact, I think having to make a few sacrifices for something you really want leads to greater satisfaction :)

    I chose Engineering as well as Management because I organize engineers for a living. And it's for a bank, so I am also finance-adjacent.

    Business owner was me for 25+ years, but then sold it and became a banker. Also clicked project manager since I run operations for the bank. See, I’m not a lawyer or doctor, but I store their money.

    A savant you can see without an appointment. There are walk-in public savant clinics everywhere.

    Certified Public Savants, you definitely need an appointment to see.

    Private Savants aren’t taking on new clients for the most part.

    Then there are Idiot Savants. They’re specialists, so you need a referral.

    Teacher here, and no longer a public school teacher. I am now a private school teacher, and that came with a $22K pay cut!!!!! Most of my beautiful collection was sold off after my wife left at the end of November. I have three PRS' left - the purple P22, the SC245 57/08, and the pink sparkle CE24 DW. Oh well. They get the job done, and the others allowed me to get a new place to live, pay for a lawyer, buy new furniture, and have utility deposits - with cash left over. Blessings for sure!!

    I was going to say savant, but people generally say idiot when they are using it in a description of me. :cool:Sometimes they even leave out the savant part.:(

    wapner’s off the air and the kmart closed down (it sucked), but i’m still an excellent driver.

    a public savant in my case does statistics for usda (wilderness and wildfire). so embarrassing.
