Vol.25 Intellectual Ability and Physical Strength.
 It has been 45 years since I started my career. For those years, a wide range of people have advised me about what things are and what lives are. Among these, there are a few who especially inspired me. Let me tell you the story of an economic man who taught me about intellectual ability and physical strength.

 He graduated from a national university with Associate of Science degrees and became the top management of a major holding company. After retirement, he created a psychological test company out of his interest in statistics. Then, he wrote a book about his statistical analysis of post-test data. The book covers data of intellectual ability and physical strength, and he explained them in detail to me as follows:

 “We selected a college-graduate worker for research and found out what types of abilities he used at work in the first year after he joined the company. According to the data, his working abilities were made up of 25% inherent ability, 25% learning ability, and 50% physical strength. Meanwhile, the data for his last year before retirement showed 25% inherent ability, 50% learning ability, and 25% physical strength.

 It is no surprise that his learning ability doubled while his physical strength halved. But an interesting point here is that his physical strength still occupied 25% of all his working abilities even before retirement. These data proved that I was wrong in raising my child. I greatly regret that I should have let my son play sports. Now I know that study alone will not shape a person.”
End.
