Which Is More Important – ‘Book Smarts” Or ‘Street Smarts’?

Getting a formal education on the road to success is the American way, but many people have made good livings by relying on others skills that were not learned in the classroom.

So does this mean “street smarts” are as important as “book smarts?”

According to a Rasmussen Reports survey of 1,000 adults, it doesn’t work out that way in the real world.. Sixty-six percent of the poll’s respondents answered that formal education is the key to success, whereas as 21 percent said street smarts will do more for you. Fourteen percent aren’t sure where they stand on the book smarts versus street smarts debate.
