“It seemed to me that they (educational system) were teaching mediocrity and people were using a statistical approach. Rather than take someone of excellence and study the pattern, the adventures of this person they took someone who is extraordinarily extroverted and operated in the world or someone who was extraordinarily introverted and they did the statistical analysis and came up with the middle. The middle is exactly what I am not interested in” – John Grinder
