Book Smarts vs Street Smarts?

How do you take the stuff you've learned and try to apply it to real life? Like if you read a book about how to build your motivation, or your self-confidence. What happens if there is a disconnect between what you are reading and you actually applying what you read?

  • Book smarts can't give you street smarts I'm afraid.

    Street smarts is learned from common sense and experience

  • being book smart is mass of information.
    street smart is accuracy of information.

    you can´t live without being street smart at all but you can live without being book smart at all. though quality of life gets better the more book smart you are. cause it´s more likely to know a solution for a problem if you read about it than making one up on the spot.

  • Street smarts. You can learn a lot of book smarts if you're street smart but you cannot learn street smarts by book smarts.

  • Lol street smarts in my opinion just equates to common sense. The actual term "street smarts" seems to only be coined by the uneducated and not so bright.
