Be practical or critical?
For some if not all situations we tend or simply choose to be practical rather than critical.
In most cases I’d rather be pragmatic too.
Reminds me of Sternberg’s Triarchic Theory of Intelligence. Street-smart here.
–My Take on it
Street savvy is adaptive intelligence while education helps to develop and improve knowledge and analytical side. Street smarts are pragmatic and results focused.
However, being BOTH – street smart and educated creates a potential achiever.
