My Friends are Way Smarter than Me
Shane Parrish

On top of what I understand is the main message, which is to surround myself with smarter people and to not feel diminished when expressing my struggles to learn from their competencies and successes (half-hoping they are finding some things to take away from my conversation as well or our relationship won’t last unhinged), I found myself curious about another idea mentioned in your article: accepting vulnerability in favor of sharing experiences opposed to the pressure of appearing strong and in control at all times.

More than not, in lots of my social interactions, I end up pondering between these two behavioral stigmates ; I never dug deeper to figure out the root cause of this internal dilemma. Any thoughts on your end on this concept?

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
