    Great thread MrBlak....and good question!

    Hmmm...as I "configurate" :lol: on the options you provided, you might want to consider adding one: All of the above. I suggest that because that the option I would choose, although I don't argue on message boards...well, not anymore ...but I do love a good debate and find that I learn a great deal from them!

    Whatcha think?

    Queenie :spinstar:

    I would have to agree with brother Rich and say all of the above! Certain things you can only learn at school, other things you learn on the street. You can always learn by having conversations with people more experienced and wiser than yourself (which always exist, even if you have a Ph.D, and are a so-called expert in your field). You can learn from joining political groups. Knowledge can be (and should be) gained from anyplace!

    I have to agree with Rich and Pan ....life is a learning process everyday you may learn something you didnt know the day before....all is not learned in school you see they skip alot of our history but yet we learn...so we learn from each other....even with jobs you go in knowing but you still learn more of that area as you grow in that skill or skills.... same as going to college for one field as you grow in that field you learn more....knowledge is taught/learnt in many ways....

    all of the above I would also say

    Peace
    Angel

    I have to say all of the above also. However, my biggest factor is through life experiences. Through each process I have lived and learn from them.

    All of the above have a role in what I know today but it's the personal life experience of each that hold's the greatest impact.

    I agree with the majority so far, all of the above. What holds the greatest impact depends upon the type of knowledge that is being focused on.
