Day 287 – The role of education

In this case I’m thinking specifically of the role of my education on me. I’m attending a panel discussion on the topic of top managers’ compensation. This is a topic that has interested me for a long time and that I’ve read a lot about. But that’s not the education I’m thinking of at the moment. What I’ve been feeling as I listen especially to one of the panelists, who feels that these top managers earn and deserve the tens of millions they receive, is my training in critical thinking. I may be terrible at facts and figures, but I can recognize contradictions and holes in people’s logic at 50 paces. And, boom, there goes my openness. I start taking delight in arguing with the person in my head and stop listening. Hello, judging.
