Schroedinger is an inventor, but his dominant trait is laziness. He’s positive that laziness is the driving force behind progress.
He’s always creating the wildest gadgetry: whatever he can do to avoid having to get up and do something himself. The development of these ‘optimizers’ has been hindered by this laziness, and they don’t really hold together or work as well as Schroedinger promised, though sometimes they work better than expected.
Schroedinger can find theoretical justification for just about anything. Schroedinger criticizes others, but is often self-effacing. He doesn’t generally share his personal views on a subject. His conclusions are often self-conflicting.
