I don't mean that as a character flaw. In Fact, I can empathize with his limitations. Given the opportunity to become OC, I would become Likens.
In my younger days, I was building a plant for a Pharma company. A&E firms were doing the main design, but I was furnishing them with the production line layouts and process piping distribution. During a break, I commented that I had driven by the new home of the assistant architect. He had designed and built on a great house on Central. They asked why I didn't do the same since I knew my way around a design board, construction management and contracts. I told them that I had tried to design a house, but always ended up with a pile of wasted paper.
As we talked, the young architect asked questions about features, size, building materials, etc. I thought he was taking notes. At the end of the break, he handed me his yellow pad with a rendering of my dream house. That is why he was good designer and I was only a good builder. Arthur C. Clarke was correct. I needed a visionary. Maybe so does Likens.
