So I should dwell excessively on the tiny details that no one else woud see or care about let alone have any realsitic bearing on things as a whole?

Then use a long drawn out overly complicated process, where I have many chances of doing some small but important detail wrong, opposed to using simple reliable method to get the exact same results?

Then follow that up with over analysis of the near irrelevant while ignoring the real point of the problem as a whole?

And lastly, when my theory and reality do not in fact come anywhere close to matching assume that it's reality that is wrong.

Hmm. ??

TCM, what you described is not being an Engineer, it's being a Scientist. You know the old joke:

"Engineers believe their equations are an aproximation of reality. Scientists believe that reality is an aproximation of their equations. Mathemeticians are unable to make the connection."
