Most inventors and engineers I’ve met are like me … they live in their heads. They’re almost like artists. In fact, the very best of them are artists. And artists work best alone …. I’m going to give you some advice that might be hard to take. That advice is: Work alone… Not on a committee. Not on a team.
— Steve Wozniak, quoted in an article about the creative benefits of solitude. cf. Pablo Picasso: “Without great solitude, no serious work is possible.” (The author of the article, Susan Cain, has a new book coming out: Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking)
