Re: Education reinforcement at home

Just to mix things up a bit, there is a risk of being over analytical and over correct (always subjectively correct). There's a good chance you can alienate yourself from the general population.


I'm sure we all know of a few people who are super book smart - in many fields, maybe also amazing an instrument as well, but have zero social skills or social awareness.


Perhaps the general population is becoming dumber (relatively - think Idiocracy), but in the end the human race is a combined society more than a collection in individuals.


Marketing influence is arguably the strongest power, and more so as the upcoming generation (I guess the working class already) has grown up only knowing this.


Remember, a super intelligent person, with all the right answers but no society skills will never bring change. Whereas a charismatic, socially apt person will always be successful whether they are right or not.
