Book Smart/Street Smart. I don''t think one understands the HUGE difference unless you are in the field w/ hands on experience of experience - whatever that expertise may be. It''s near impossible to convince the book smart that they aren''t street smart, especially if they believe their book smarts can translate.Date: 2/14/2005 125:49 AM
Book Smart versus Street Smart: Book smart is good for definitions, but street smart comes by trial and error (costly in this endeavor), or alternately by using a street-smart guide who helps you learn the territory and avoid dangers.
(that''s where ''we'' come in)
But, having a knowledgable (able to understand the lingo & the relationship to cost, etc that the lingo will mean) does make the job easier. I have found the more knowledgable people are the less they think they know & the more they defer to the "pro".
