When I did an internship at Natural History magazine, which was located within the American Museum of Natural History in New York City, I observed that the size of a scientist’s ego seemed to be correlated with the size of the organism he studied. So the paleontologists (the guys who study dinosaurs) had huge egos and the entomologists (they study insects) tended to have smaller ones. I much preferred the company of the entomologists.
