The education system treats everyone like they are five years old, who need discipline and to soak up all that's new. It does not take into account advances in personality psychology, and how people can learn to be creative, hold opinions, and think for themselves. While certain individuals do focus on gaining skills and increasing knowledge, other people would like to figure out how things work, and why some things work better than others. The education system is mainly focused on the former, without much consideration for the latter. For example, Albert Einstein was working as an accountant, instead of being fostered as an original thinker. The education system needs to identify and foster such creative individuals, instead of letting those extraordinary talents work dead-end jobs as salesmen, deliverymen, and restaurant workers.
How can personality psychology be used to improve and modify the current education system, that works more like an assembly-line than something with an understanding of human nature and potential?
