"People may think that they’re good at one subject and bad at another, but in reality most people are strikingly consistent."

  1. Hbabies and sorrounds are mostly composed by lazy psychologists, those who analyze humans in such distant and compact ways. People are often individually variable, those differences are universal, everyone is good, avg and bad in different things. The main difference is how big this is. Because hbabies and surrounds can't accept the existence of emotional intelligence via any decisive argumentation they often just analyze IQ scores or scholastic achievements in very artificial ways and deny any relevance of noncognitive skills. This supposed prevalence of individual homogeneity in achievement reflects inaccuracy of psychological approach. Come back to the real concrete world and tell me someone who are exceptionally identical in all skills... Even within skills we tend to differentiate, for example, in verbal, some people is better on grammar, others is better on verbal reasoning speed, or orthography, and yes, there is a trend to be generally good but right now i don't see any salient evidence about it. If lazy psychometricians were more concerned to analyse each subtest score with real world achievements and skills maybe this mirage would disappear..

  2. No matter how hard they try, some people aren't able to acquire deep theoretical knowledge about a single topic. Others have the capacity to acquire expert knowledge about almost any topic they decide to study.

    1. I'm not against what you're saying but the possible myth that majority of people are individually homogeneous because factor g. What is less common is huge discrepancies but implicit assymmetric cognitive profiles [general IQ can't capture], despising noncognitive interactions, is likely to be the rule, my bet.

      ''Others have the capacity to acquire expert knowledge about almost any topic they decide to study.''

      But ''to know everything'' in above average ways often mean: know many things but not in ''deeper'' or correct ways.

      Maybe because all studies have the same structures or hierarchies. So they use logic.
