Would you make a better architect or teacher?
Seeing as I am an architect....except I'm learning that the more experience you have, the more you are expected to teach the junior staff whether you want to or not. So teaching eventually becomes a part of being an architect, like it or not
Since when did I ignore you?
A roller coaster architect. I'd hate to be a teacher, but I love the way those scream-machines fly. I want one in my back yard some day :D
I enjoy designing and building.
Sounds like a Ted Mosby kind of question!
I am a teacher and I think a good one. I try. I love architecture but could never properly design a structure.
I want to be an architect so... I don't think I could teach. I'm still in high school and with some of the things my peers do I don't think I would be able to be a teacher...
I enjoy teaching if I get to pick what's being taught.
Definitely a teacher. I already have been a gymnastics coach for kids ranging from 20 months old to high school. I've got good skills with kids and I would teach how I would like be to taught. As for the architect, I can't draw well, I'm not super creative, and I'm not the best at math. Major no.
Seems like an unlikely comparison to me.
Architects deal with grown-ups, teachers deal with... Not-grown-ups.
Already am an architect. I design housing, and special equipment for tge Marines Corp. after serving for 8 years.
Some buildings take years, and you would work about 80 hours a week...
Designing of all kinds is good at any rate, though few architects design buildings that will be built because only one or two architects will get that job in a commercial office.
Just like Castanza, van de lay!
When I am asked by a peer for help, I usually give them the answer instead. Architect.
I wanted to be an architect for most of my life but now I'm leaning more towards civil engineering
I like architecture but would be able to actually build a building when it came down to it.
An -employed- architect is never bored, especially not after only two days. You can't get anything completely designed in two days...
otherwise, it would be interesting what I could teach...I'd teach something like history, global warming., something goofy
I picked teacher, but I'd be fired..I would be on those kids quick if I saw someone playing on a cellphone while I was teaching..I would've broken the f***Ker.. SOooo
I would be a better architect, except that I actually want to teach. After two days I would design insane things out of boredom
Amen to that. I'm a teacher too and I'm challenged to be more and more creative every day. Just because I lack artistic skills does not mean I am not creative.
Well judging by the fact that I'm in college to be an architect, I'll go with that
I would be horrible at both. But slightly less as a teacher
Teachers like fire fighters police and all other government employes should be held to the same standards as everyone else It's a job your not a hero by proxy
i was reading this poll while watching How I Met Your Mother. Lol
I am a teacher.
All my buildings would be half-finished, and
@Doopy. That was my first thought when I saw this post!
In my line of work, I see several teachers' classrooms every week. Good teachers are less common than you'd think. I suppose they are like architects in that way ... .
@moonshot : left brained, organized, language gifted, experienced - teacher for me :)
Cracked.com recently questioned why many male characters on tv and in movies are architects, yet you rarely meet one in real life.
Not intentionally. ;)
As a future structural engineer, and wannabe architect, I feel I'll really be able to communicate with architects and we can put out really stunning buildings.
Architect...taking drafting courses now, though I'm going into civil and structural engineering first I've always wanted to be an architect, just don't love it enough to deal with all the downfalls as a career.
Paging Ted Mosby?
Do we have anyone on here who is a professor of arcitechture? :-)
I'm not exactly a people person, and I don't like kids, and I hate having to explain elementary concepts to people who've no intention on deviating from their presupposed views, so architect it is.
Architects are highly rational, highly imaginative souls, and good ones are very rare souls. Relatively speaking, good teachers are a dime a dozen.
Seeing as I AM an architect.... Lol
An architect is someone that is extroverted, intuitive, right-brained, and unstructured. The ability to think outside the box is highly desired as is the ability to listen and communicate. Imagination is valued more than creativity, and yes, there is a difference.
I'm feeling a Ted Mosby vibe from this question.
I am a civil & architect engineer rather than a teacher.
Architect. I lack the ability to explain that is required of a teacher. But im not creative, so really none
I am a teacher and trust me you have to be creative to teach in any capacity. Can't imagine doing anything else.
Definitely architect!!! I studied interior design in school and LOVED the architectural classes most! That was just as CAD was really coming into use so I learned drawing everything by hand. I also loved the landscape architecture classes. If I only lived in a larger urban area............
Architect I am more of a creative person than teacher type personality plus i don't know that I'd have the patience to deal with kids in class every day
But you'd be caring for our children and forging the next generation of Americans. Can't you retire on that knowledge alone?? Slacker!
Teaching is in my family. And to do it well, will pay you and the world back many times over.
