A shape rotator is someone with high visuospatial ability. Contrasts with with wordcel, i.e. someone with high verbal ability.

It's a term based on puzzles used in some IQ tests that require the test-taker to mentally rotate or unfold a shape to see which shape it matches up with.

someone who has a higher visuospatial IQ than verbal IQ; more attuned to empiricism and technical pursuits.
deep learning vs crypto is a clear divide of shape rotators vs wordcels. the former offends theorycel aesthetic sensibilities but empirically works to produce absurd miracles. the latter is an insane series of nerd traps and sky high abstraction ladders yet mostly scams
