Older and Wiser
HI daveman, welcome to Quantnet!!!
its not about emphasizing. Its just about putting one's perspective
Everyone has his/her own traits. I am not sure if I am the correct person to comment on since I would be starting with my FE program this fall. But I feel that such formal things of mathematics and statistics give you a foundation on which you can justify your "human side". what makes one different is the usage of the knowledge that one has. One person may use the knowledge of black-scholes for doing something while the other may keep it in the bag forever.
