I have edited this fifty times, I mean this as an example and not to boast because it has not been as great as it seems from the inside, take this with that mindset.
I learned six programming languages, sold a company at 16, and dropped out of high school at 17. I am most definitely what many would consider an autodidact.
But I have a more natural inclination to learning as much as I can, and I believe that college teaches those skills that I got so happily from my parents and environment but most people don’t.
College is good for most people in this regard, albeit I believe the system is incredibly corrupt and useless.
