different kinds of software engineers

The detailed VENN diagram on this page is great. I don't know how accurate their numbers are, but It is such a true statement that you can sort most software developers into one of two camps by asking:
1. Can you define the tenets of Object Oriented programming?
2. Can you use an oscilloscope?

Rare indeed is a sofware engineer who can go from troubleshooting the rise/fall times on the I2C data they're generating to writing a database application complete with GUI.
