Who is a fish judge by its ability to climb a tree?
Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree. It will live its whole life believing that it is stupid(Einstein). This made me think what is best experience or academic? probably some kind of balance. But in my mind the society believes different by saying academic is the way to go.
When we take an education we are being marked according to a scale. Some gets high marks others get low mark that is the nature of marking. That result in a believe that a high mark means you are smart and low mark stupid. I have been told that high marks create great opportunities for future jobs, which is why I always go for the high mark and get stressed because of it. Looking at the way we are being marked it has something to do with the ability to do a prober analysis and other criteria's. We can only analyze the written academic literature which is based on real life observation. So I am being judge on my ability to analyze written literature and being marked according to it. When I hopefully get a job I will have to analyze real situation with real living people involved in it. Really a different thing in my mind.
So my future job opportunities depends on my ability to analyze written literature, but my future carrier will depend on my ability to analyze real situation with real people. What does this mean?
Well in my mind it means that you might get high marks here and might get low "marks" in the "real" world. So what does a mark then say. Those who get low mark might in fact be better than those who get high marks when it comes to work. They might have been the fish judge to climb a tree.
