  Dichotomies
I've been thinking a lot lately about two orthogonal dichotomies and I don't know why.
Craftmanship vs. Architecture (sometimes simplified as the details vs the big picture)
and
Storytelling vs Science (usually referred to as fiction vs non-fiction or subject vs object)

Maybe because both of these are false dichotomies but are assumed to be true nontheless. People often say of one another that they are detail oriented not a strategic thinker, touchy feely not logical. Or they say they are stuck with their head in the clouds not down to earth, nerdy not empathetic.

I'm discovering that reality is in between and that pragmatism requires a compromise, a third way of thinking about things along these dimensions.
