I am neither or both - depends on when you ask.

But, I have no disdain for theorists as they go further, faster than I can go. Trial and error is terribly inefficient. Although it does often come up with very cool stuff. One has to be lucky.

Einstein was a theoretical physicist - he built nothing but elaborate ideas. Those ideas have been extraordinarily successful in practice.
