Telling your story in qualitative and quantitative terms

This is a really interesting piece by Robery Krulwich:

In it, he asks a writer and a physicist to talk about their lives. They describe their lives in vastly different terms. The writers tells his story in narrative form, and the physicist describes his in terms of data. In fact, the physicist has amassed a sizable collection of what he calls ‘personal data.’ He provides an interesting an unusual perspective and begs the question ‘what does this data mean?’ or, as Dr Castillo Ayometzi would ask, “what is being constituted here?”

Enjoy!
