Very true...agility and adaptability are key to the future. I myself was still trying to decide between learning skills and thinking skills when I post the poll. But I suppose, having learning skill will enable one to pick up thinking and other skills as well.

Erm...actually there is...
if you find your boy/girl suddenly being motivated to do well, chances are that his/her sweetheart is in the better class... :wink:
