This blog is explaining and exploring how architects think, so I’m sharing. To those of you who are not architects, we are emotional beings. We are tough, but very connected to our feelings; sometimes we make incorrect decisions because of them. Our days can often fluctuate emotionally simply by what happens at work that day. We can go from elated to deflated in a few minutes based on a single phone call. Shallow perhaps, you’re thinking. To explain the flurry of emotions that architects are subject to, see the chart below. This isn’t an objective or comprehensive chart, just one I cooked up tonight.
Feel free to add your own comments and suggestions. Who knows, maybe I’ll edit it and reissue it. It depends on how I feel.
