Other professions[change | change source]

Futurist[change | change source]

A futurist is a notable scientist who can seemingly predict the future. Futurists often use PPPW to evaluate the future. The "three Ps and one W" represent, to futurists, "plausible", "possible", and "preferable". The "W" stands for "wildcard"(random) events.[9]

Science Popularizer[change | change source]

A science popularizer, or a popularizer of science, is one who captures the scientific method and accuracy to preserve the language in the name of science.[10]
