I’m not sure that you can discover whether someone has the skill to learn new things when you don’t know much about what it is they do.

I’d also like to add, and it’s hinted in the post I think, that the person’s mindset is usually more important than their actual knowledge or resume. Skills can be learned, mindset and personality are much harder to change.

In addition, the skill to be able learn new things is the most important skill a person can have in my opinion. It’s like cheating when you have “one wish” and you ask for “endless number for wishes” 🙂

What are your thoughts on this Adrian? Does it line up with your post?
