To opinionate or to be opinionated as defined by Webster means to have an unduly adhering to one's own opinion or to preconceived notions. In “laymen’s terms“ basically it is to strongly stick to one’s own point of view. If education is so vast than how can someone be “well” at it? ~Kohn reveals that his wife who is a physician is hesitant at times reciting multiplication. This does not mean she is uneducated when indeed she may be responsible for saving someone’s life. Yet because she cannot teach a math class or write the President’s inauguration speech it portrays as if she is not “erudite” Contrarily speaking does the fact that she is a Physician depicts as her being smarter than someone who works performs “blue collar” work? Does some levels of education coexist with one’s occupation?
Often society places a label on things. Such as if you see someone wearing baggy jeans and a tank top you would not assume this person worked for a Fortune 500 company. On the other hand imagine a male who just won Jeopardy that cannot perform something a common task such as checking the oil in a vehicle. The baggy jeans guy can in fact be a scientist who is embarking on an invention that change mankind. Perception plays a huge role in judgment for people. Contrarily perception is not fact. It is no way possible that man can learn everything there is to know. Therefore the level of someone’s education does not vary among career fields. Rarely when the term well educated is brought up is not associated with a person knowing it all.
Recently I was driving and happened to catch a radio discussion concerning education and it’s impact on success. The host of the show brings up the topic of athletes and their large pay scale. The host felt as instead of his parents pushing him to pursue education to cultivate his success; He wished his parents would have advocated athletics more. He goes on further to mention that he is content with his current living situation, but implies that athletics would have been the smarter and easier route due to it’s larger payout and less time in the classroom. Is being educated determined by a level of certification of earned from an institute of higher learning or how long one stays in school? Further proving education is not determined specifically by your expertise.
Let’s conduct an analogy. We have a doctor and a lawyer....
