As a highly educated individual, I can say that highly educated people are fucking retards. Myself excluded, of course. 😋

Want to hang out with some smart people? Go meet up with some farmers. Especially the older ones that have been around for a while. They know mechanics, physics, geometry, algebra, accounting, botany, animal husbandry, zoning, environmental management, electricity, plumbing, carpentry, cash flow management, project management, futures contracts, irrigation, can drive commercial trucks, and more.

I've been building water catchments around the property while getting my stepdaughter who thinks that she'll never need higher math. So, I was telling her that we need to figure out the storage size for each of the catchment surfaces.

So, we measured the length and width of each one to get the surface area. I pointed out that's basic geometry we're using to do this. I think pointed out that the problem is that the surface areas are on angles, each one has a different angle. The rain comes down perpendicular to the ground, so we need the effective surface area. She recently had some introductory trig, so I pointed out to her that the ratio of the surface area of the catchment to the ground was the cosine of the angle of incline. The ground is basically the adjacent plane and the catchment is the hypotenuse plane.

There's also designing the storage system so that it doesn't trap air so it fully fills. If you have a zone of air that's above the fill inlet, that air becomes trapped and the pressure will keep it from filling any further. So, I had her watch a video of a guy making a storage system of barrels where he didn't do this. I asked her what he did wrong and how he can fix it. I then pointed out to her that people didn't develop this knowledge just to make problems for text books. There's actual applications for it.

That's beautiful. I did something similar with my daughter where we were designing a staircase for my father-in-law with stairs that are 4.5" high each. I walked her through designing the staircase and calculating how high they'll actually need to be to match the desired height while keeping the stairs a uniform height, and how to calculate how much lumber we need to buy.

She said, "I've learned more about math today than I have in all of school."

We then went to the store and got all the materials we needed and we built it together, and we solved problems together as they came up. It was a beautiful day.

Education and intelligence are not the same things. They simply go well together.

Thats a pretty gross simplification. It's important to note that education is not synonymous with a flawed education system.

Just an example: Learning how the physical world interacts with itself isn't memorizing facts, but that's still education.

Taking the education of how the physical world interacts and applying it to solve a problem, or recognize that something stated is impossible because it violates known principles, that requires intelligence.

Husky 1 point ago +1 / -0

that requires only memory

What if what you learned at school was false?

What if what you remember isn't what you were taught? Simple example that you need more than memory to "form conclusions." You're still conflating education with "school" and those aren't the same things.

If all you're doing is rejecting new data because it conflicts with what you read in a textbook in college, then you're not intelligent.

Correct. Because education and intelligence are not the same thing.

Much more reasonable take. Sometimes Educated people learn to be dumb in a more efficient and rigid manner, but sometimes dumb people reject truthful education out of sheer laziness and envy.

Being uneducated is not a badge of honor any more than being an indoctrucated monkey.

Philosopher, Karl Popper wrote an essay titled 'Sources of Knowledge and Ignorance'' which argued that ignorance can be acquired by the same means as knowledge. You can come out of school dumber than when you went in.

PocketPosse 2 points ago +2 / -0

Absolutely. Ive seen it in action. I had to take cultural awareness classes for my education degree. They start with a false definition, and then train you how to apply that false definition to interpret the world. When the interpretation fails to reflect reality, they literally appeal to the explaination hiding somewhere in ignorance. "We dont know, but if we keep being progressive, we are 100% positive that the solution will emerge from the progress."

MCMLXXXIV 1 point ago +1 / -0

All the engineers I've met over my many years of work all have the same problem. They are told they're the smartest of the smart and that they can change the world. So they all want to make their mark. It becomes more of a creativity thing for them. Instead of taking the quickest route towards solving the problem, they create a complicated mess that ends up with a thousand other problems. No one calls them out on it because they're "smart." They never ask us dumb operators, "What do you think would work best here?" That's beneath them.

As far as money, I have a friend, same age as me, who is an electrical engineer. I was in electrical engineering when I dropped out of college and became an operator at a power station. A few months back, he bragged about "finally" breaking $100k a year. I went above that almost 15 years ago.

These are just my experiences, of course. Maybe it's different in other industries/areas.

The job I have now you need military experience or a college degree. I have both. Anyway, day one of my job, my sup asked me my background and I told her military and she said "another veteran hire...any college?" I told her I have a Degree from UCLA. She couldnt stop with the "Oohhs & Aahhs. She was so impressed until I told her the same thing you said: "My degree is absolutely worthless. I would have gotten this job ANYWAY with the military experience and I would have almost 5 years of seniority if I just started here in the first place." Upon further reflection, I realize that degree has not opened any doors, got my foot in any doors, basically did anything for me.

Filetsmignon 12 points ago +12 / -0

My take is opposite. The idiots are the ones thinking candidates with grad degrees, MBA included, are more qualified. From personal experience I can tell you my grad degree gets these sheep opening the door of opportunities to me I have almost no real qualifications for. I know I'm not smarter because of those extra few courses and $50k I spent, but the corporate world thinks I am. And I play them like fools for their money, guide their companies how I please and ask myself daily how they could be so naive.

It means retarded ideologies like communism don't account for human nature, which a) communism completely ignores and b) totally undermines the basic tenants of communism, which is why it never works; people do what is in their own best interests, not in the interests of a collective. When someone gets a bonus from their job do they think "hey, I'm going to donate this to the US treasury!"? Of fucking course not, they think about how they're going to use it on their family, or how they're going to make Papa Biden proud by pissing it away on coke and escorts.

But no really, most highly educated people are just good at academics. They usually have average or below average critical thinking skills, which is why they are good at academics. Not the material itself persay, but getting good grades. I'm a certified genius and my grades always sucked because I didn't care about academics.

Hired people for years. The trait that was hardest to secure was folks with problem solving abilities. As a general rule, the more impressive looking the resume, the less likely the employee was to actually be resourceful and generally competent. Finally got the company to let me hire people with "some college" and then eventually no college. Looked for people who worked in retail, food service, landscaping, etc when younger as it generally correlated with better work ethic than entitled kids. No surprise, some of the best employees able to learn and excel in the job didn't have a 4 yr or greater degree.

The biggest practical problem with getting a Masters, of any kind, before you're already an accomplished professional, is that every hiring manager who interviews you knows you aren't going to stick around for anything less than a senior/leadership role.

I have personally not hired people over this. Why would I hire the candidate with a Masters when I've got two other candidates who are equally qualified via real world experience? The Masters candidate wants more money, and my reward for paying it is someone who has to leave the second a more senior role comes along, because they've got 150k in student loans.

Plus most of them are just flat stupid.

Once upon a time a college degree was a good sign, not a guarantee mind you, that you were educated. By educated, I mean a deep understanding of Western ideas, logic, mathematics, literature, rhetoric, science, etc. This hasn't been the case for at least 75 to a 100 years.

Many years ago I worked for lawyers as a computer tech and general office help. A woman lawyer was brought in being highly regarded for traffic and criminal cases. I'll refer to her as DF.

She had the assistant handling the books. DF signed checks and also signed off the account being balanced. It's just basic math.

The most important thing I learned in college was how to learn. I was taught history, but I didn't truly understand it until I started reading books on my own years later.

There's education and then there's street smarts. Nothing a college teaches you will make you able to deal with a swindler or a thief. These people don't know how to deal with deception because they live in an imaginary post-crime world. I know you'll hate to hear this but it's true: they only know how to deal with honest people. When they get matched against truly wicked people, that's when they're proven to be gullible, fallible, and fickle. We call that not having a backbone.

MBAs are second only to HR as cancers on American business.

MBAs are, by and large, fools, as are those who put them in authority. Imagine hiring someone with zero business experience, mentored by people with zero business experience, as key decision makers. Fucking retarded.

This is especially true of those with PHD's in the computer programming field. They are arrogant and often write terrible code.

a university degree does not make you smarter, anyone who says that it makes you "clever" is wrong, and worse knowing the indoctrination that exists in the country's universities.

People have lost the ability to deduce fact from logic and reason which is why they can't determine what's true from the evidence presented to them. Instead, they outsource their thinking to the propaganda machine and assume anyone with 'credentials' is the only source of truth. You can show a normie Pythagoras' theorem and they'll argue with you because you're not a mathematician.

Look back to the 90s when the institution of higher education went from something most didn't need, to an industry by education administrators to dumb it down until everyone could and had to pay them $100,000 to put their chip on the board.

It's not surprising that a large number of these students with their inflated grades and lower expectations feel superior because of their medal.
