    I choose book smarts over street smarts any day and never understood those who choose otherwise. But, I use my book smarts with common sense wherever I am smile

    One needs BOTH in order to survive in the law of the jungle world, especially in corporations.   If one just have book smarts, h/she won't be successful because in order to succeed because in addition to be educated, one must be able to discern people's mannerisms & personality.    If one merely have street smarts, h/she would advance very far as decent jobs will be closed to him/her which means that h/she will resort to illegal means to gain a livelihood-sooner or later because of such activities, h/she will be incarcerated.
