So it's basically the question if you want to be diagnosed and cured by Dr House or patted on the back by a mild-mannered "alternative medicine" quack.
There are plenty of doctors who have *both* excellent technical skills and excellent bedside manner. The idea that geniuses are inevitably miserable human beings makes good television, but doesn't have much to do with reality.

On the other hand, it can be helpful to remember that if a teacher is being nice, that could just mean they don't give a @#$% whether you get it or not.
