Ques.: Why will my Great Scientist (GS) immediately provide +1743/2288 for Printing Press but my Great Prophet (GPro) will only bulb +1162/2288 for it?

I wouldn't have noticed but I was checking to see what each would bulb that turn, learned it was Printing Press for both, but noticed one will give more towards it.

Background (in case it would make a diff.):
Ramesses, Pangea, Standard, Prince, C4W

The GPro (which gives fewer beakers toward Printing Press) predates the GS by 9 turns; both from same city. I didn't cap./lose any cities or whip during those 9 turns (not in Slavery) but most cities may have increased in pop.

GScientist bulbs give 1.5 times more beakers than any other great person type, the rest are all equal.

Thanks. I had hoped there'd be a GP bias toward certain techs; not just in the order (per DaveMcW) but their bulbing values. IE. a GPro would be more inclined to develop Printing Press technology in order to print religious texts to facilitate the spread of religious dogma

[BTW, in my example above, I probably should have used the GPro as it was the last bulbing tech it could perform]
