Gradgrind (noun):One who is only interested in cold, hard facts. The word comes from the Dickens novel "Hard Times" in which a character named Thomas Gradgrind operates entirely on the basis of facts and calculations.

"If you think that you'll find airy, poetic types in publishing houses, I regret to inform you that you will only find financial gradgrinds."
