Hmmm. I agree that training and education are different, but my experience
doesn't confirm your explanation. If you refer to education without any
external influences, I'd have to accept your idea (darn near impossible, I'd
say). If you mean that it's easier for people to be taught than to pursue
knowledge on their own, I'd say that a few members of this list are exceptions
to your rule (myself included). Could you clarify your meaning?
