It’s estimated that we spend 75% of our brain power on dealing with other people. If one learns nothing else, learn human psychology. A person who can deal with people successful will succeed no matter which field he is in. Preparing your kid for this is perhaps the most important thing you can do outside of character development.
Good ways to learn human psychology:
– Social interactions with others, especially people who are from different cultures and have different perspectives.
– Games such as Monopoly and Poker that require negotiations, reading opponents’ minds, observing their behavior, etc.
