This would apply to every situation you face in life.
Watched this a month ago and found it fascinating. Can we relearn something in a different way? Sure you betcha!
Knowledge without wisdom availeth nothing.
It's possible to be educated far beyond your ability to use such education, they are called educated idiots. They make up our laws.
Some of them. The vast majority of them vote the people into office that make the laws.
"There are three kinds of intelligence; one kind understands things for itself, the other kind appreciates what others can understand, the third understands neither for itself, nor through others. The first kind is excellent, the second good, and the third kind useless ". Niccolo Machiaveli
Knowledge does not equate to competence or mastery of a given task/subject. Look up the Dunning-Kruger Effect. You'll get a laugh of how Dunning and Kruger discovered this phenomena. Many intelligent people are partially-to-completely incompetent on a given task/subject and do not know it. Maslow called it being "Unconsciously Incompetent". Many "experienced/knowledgeable" folks show up to our Defensive Handgun 1 (the next level after the CHL course) and think it is going to be a "walk in the park" because they are a BAGMEL* and/or KALAG**. Then by 10 o'clock they're having a "reality check" and are far more incompetent than they ever realize; thus they move from being unconsciously incompetent to being consciously incompetent which we see demonstrated in the video.
Therefore, being a BAGMEL or a KALAG does not equate to competence or mastery of a given task/subject.
*BAGMEL = "Been Around Guns My Entire Life!"
**KALAG = "Know A Lot About Guns!"
Lots of people know how to work on equipment, know every nut and bolt but they don't know how to operate it. Skill comes from having the dexterity and training to operate, the development of muscle memory to make every move work done with the machine. Lots of people ride bikes but don't race bikes etc.
The perfect analogy is Pilots and Ground Crew
Neither can do both jobs, but both are needed to get the mission accomplished.
Fortunately a well executed trigger press................
Knowledge: A tomato is a fruit.
Understanding: Fruit does not belong on a salad.
Sooo your saying that a Tomato belongs in a Fruit Salad?
LMAO.... Check, and mate!
You, maybe. Me, not so much.
