    What is the difference between generic (<--I'm sure im terming this wrong) & polymorphism? I know polymorphism allows for something to be compatible with many different data types, but that also seems to be what generic does. Is generic just a lower scale application of polymorphism?

    I'm trying to refresh on all this stuff I haven't touched in almost 2 years due to an upcoming interview :ugh:
