Your life is totally dominated and influenced by the hard products of research and development done by Scientists and Technologists:
Electrical Supplies; Computers; Telecommunication Technology; Television; Motor Vehicles; the list is endless.
Your understanding of such things as: Epistemology; Valid Inference; Metaphysics; etc.; is totally dominated by the Philosophers.
Make your own mind up regarding which has been most influential to you - I guess it could be the Philosophers if you are deeply into the concepts of Free Will, the Categorical Imperative; ZFC Set Theory; and so forth, but my money is on the Scientists.

there has not been a great difference between the two in past centuries. In the 1800s and before most scientists were also philosophers and vice versa.
I think they both are a strong influence for everybody. I mean those two can support and go against each other so they can impact anyone.
at tyms evn i feel the same coz philosophy has inspired the scientists who hav den influenced the commoners
