I 100% agree with this post. Extrapolating further, it is not necessary to learn everything there is to learn. This ridiculous idea that a "well-rounded" person is the most successful person is crap. When's the last time I used math beyond basic algebra? Let's see.. math class! When was the last time I had to write a paper? Again, another class in college! We waste so much time generalizing ourselves instead of streamlining the process (and information gathering) towards choosing a profession. Yes, you should be able to communicate and think logically, but beyond that it's entirely up to you what you want/need to learn. The top reason classmates of mine have been struggling to get a job out of college (aside from lack of openings, as cited by potential employers) is that they were too generalized. And that's after they chose a major in college. Other countries start offering courses to narrow your specialization in their equivalent of high school.

If only you could ban all the elitest pricks who nag people on irrelevant or esoteric facets instead of answering questions.
