“You’ve got to hang experience on a latticework of models in your head. What are the models? Well, the first rule is that you’ve got to have multiple models — because if you just have one or two that you’re using, the nature of human psychology is such that you’ll torture reality so that it fits your models, or at least you’ll think it does” – Charlie Munger

Why do people who never went to college have PhD’s and people with elite Masters’ degree distinctions working for them?
