    What will be the MUST skill to have in the future?

    In your opinion, what will be the MUST have skill to have in the future?

    My take? Some way and somehow, I need to able to speak Mandarin (Chinese) fluently; and I must miraculously find a way to learn the language autocratically.

    It would be Emotional Intelligence, or the ability to interact with people really well...

    I think although very simple and sometimes overlooked, but a vast knowledge and ability to work with computers and technology.

    people have always found it difficult to adapt to change especially in the workplace. With the pace of technology today people should become used to the idea of change everyday of their lives and move forward faster by utilizing all the options available to us.

    I used to think it was computers but over time I have found out how corrupt the world is. You need to be smart and to know what is actually going on and how people are scheming to rip others off. At the same time you must work hard and be alert. If you can maintain integrity and not fall into the corruption and manage to make money and take care of your family then I think you are doing well.

    In the future, a must-have skill is computer literacy and the ability to quickly adapt to changes and advances in technology. There have been an inclination for some time now about one day having a "paperless" society, which may take some time, but could possibly occur in the future.  Already, many banks are not sending paper statements, etc.  As we advance in the future, I think more technology changes are coming -- so to be prepared -- become technology and computer literate.

    A good grasp of languages would be the most important i'd say. The world is going in to a down turn and the ability to be able to work in a foreign country that is booming gives your employment chances a real boost.

    Telepathy?  Since ours is the age of information explosion, with telepathy instead of having our colleagues need to explain everything to us, we can better understand each other and gain agreement.  Instead of losing the meaning we want to convey from the inherent ambiguous nature of words, we can communicate the idea the closest possible way.
    At present, for example there seems to be so many religions.  One might wonder if they're all referring to the same things except using different words.  If various groups and communities can communicate in telepathic ways then, words would not be needed; intuitive understanding becomes a given.
