* ManChild: Roger has shades of this, mostly related to the ''War God'' incident, fighting temptation to lie to Edith to keep from going to the plague infested ship, most egregiously when he condemns the ''War God's'' passengers to several more week of quarantine after they land, because he just ''had'' go aboard to see her after their extended separation.

* ShownTheirWork: In the book ''Literature/ExpandedUniverse'', Mr. Heinlein explain how Mrs. Heinlein and he spent many hours calculating the precise orbit of the spaceship when it departs Luna and slingshots around Earth toward Mars. They had to do it with paper and pen, because in the early 1950s there was no other way and he wanted it to be correct.

** ScienceMarchesOn: It's a case of not thinking of it, because the basic physics remained unchanged. But it appears to never have occurred to Heinlein that Jupiter could be used to boost a spacecraft to reach a further target faster and with less fuel required. (This book ends with the Stones heading for Saturn.)
