Totally agree and thank you for your service.
What you're hitting on is a general engineering approach to everything - precision and specific ways to accomplish stuff. Sweat the details - thats what any good engineer will do because a small oversight will have you in some lab for days on end reverse engineering and tracking down what happened. I'm the first to bag on MIT and the types of folks that come out of there (i.e. bag on myself), but I have to disagree with this generalization and from experience over the last (almost) 20 years say that what you're seeing is an ENGINEERING attitude, not specific to MIT. Now had you said MIT didn't teach social skills, politics in business, business networking, and other soft skills to help you be a better business person - I'm with you 100%... :)
