I think a highly educated person can be of several sects. I'll address two very different types that I feel are pretty accurate.
There is the highly educated person who got money from well-off parents. This type of person may take it for granted that the education was hard earned (because they did not pay for it). To me this type of individual is less likely to take their education and use it to help benefit others. They would more likely be the attorneys, doctors, traders, or other professions that are, well, to put it bluntly, snobs. I would say this group grew up in city groups where things were readily available. More likely to be a know-it-all who believes their education makes them better than those who do not have one.
Then there is the individual who worked hard, got loans they are paying off, understand that there is a monetary value placed on their education. The kind of person likely grew up in smaller towns, or they were underprivileged as children. They understood that a higher education would be used to make them better people, ones who can be responsible for a greater good because they felt the impact of the cost of going to school. This kind of person would be more likely to go into police, psychology, teaching, or other helping careers... Less snobbish, and more compassionate to others who are not as educated as they are.
That's my opinion based on my own knowledge, experience, and "higher education". :D
