Don't get me started on degrees v no degrees. As a 51 year old in IT, I see so many graduates coming in at 22 to 23 thinking "I have an IT degree I know everything" and looking down at the 51 year old with 25 years in IT. As well as more experienced, the 51 year old is actually normally more technical and competent as well as less 'gung-ho' and has people skills. This isn't a "I am 51 and feeling past it" post, but more of a "I am 51, happy in what I do and confident in my knowledge and experience". Degrees show an aptitude, but experience is worth a lot more. I would rather we as a country went back to the apprentice days as you learn a trade and you become a better worker for it as you realise the world doesn't owe you a living. Full disclosure - I didn't get my degree, I dropped out (twice actually!) and then floated till I was in my mid 20s before I woke up. Also full disclosure I passed the official sit down Mensa test at 31 (151 on the Cattell scale - mainly UK, and Stanford-Binet 149 - mainly international) so maybe I am different to most. However, that doesn't make me 'clever' but again shows a certain type of person - ie logic and mathematical IMO. FWIW my lawyer brother was so pissed off I passed, he took the tests and came in at 131/127. Goes to prove how flawed an IQ test is as he is analytical to argue in a courtroom, whereas I allegedly have logic lol. Not a dig at those who have a degree, but you know what, a degree isn't the making of a person, but the starting of a person. Back on topic, Maradona didn't get a degree, but performed a Masters at football and deserves credit for what he did. Cream rises to the top, so may be his upbringing spurred him on to his greatness, rather than hindered him. ...and breathe.
