How to the operator NOT with is.numeric

I want to select all variables that are not numeric using select_if of tidyverse.

In general you’d do the following:

select_if(function (x) ! is.numeric(x))

Or, using the lambda notation of tidyeval:

select_if(~ ! is.numeric(.x))

But R has a function factory to negate the result of a function:
