revised For the transition metals, how does counting the number of up-spins and down-spins still give you a non-integer magnetic moment?

comment What's the difference between a positive and a negative current?
But if the wire has a kink, for instance, and makes the resistance be non-uniform at this spot and thus this kink becomes a hot spot, would the direction of the electron flow change the direction of the temperature gradient? I'm inclined to say no because the heat comes from scattering right? So if we have a defect on which the electrons scatter more, would it matter if the electrons are traveling to the left or to the right of the defect?
