    your analytical methods and your problem-solving skills. - taught you to move foward as a researcher in the face of ambiguity. You know how to make solid inferences in the face of thin or contradictory information. You know how to extract every last morsel of meaning from a difficult text. You can adapt to a changing environment; you can work effectively with minimal oversight.
    You know how to inch toward a solution that can't be reached all at once. You've written rough drafts that may be only 50% of the way toward success, and you haven't flinched at th struggle for improvement that lies ahead. When necessary, you have overhauled your ealy efforts multiple times until you came up with a winning final version. You aren't frieghtened of the hard issues. You know how to come at a problem from three or four different directions if no single approach is sufficient.

    Your liberal arts classes have deepened your understanding of the ways people can be swayed by others' beliefs. By the time you graduate, you have analyzed enough situation to make your own judgements about what's authentic and what's fake; what's persasive and what's futule; what's beneficial and what's harmful. You know social proof is much more than a five-second ploy that helps buskers win bigger tips.
    Two more traits belong in the liberal arts arsenal, even if they aren't talked about as much as others. ONe is the temerity to imagine yourself succeeding on a giant scale - ruling the world, if you will. ... an endless desire to get better.
    If you have a good background in what it is to be human, an understanding of life, culture and society, it gives you a good perspective on starting a business, instead of an education purely in business. YOu can always pick up how to read a balance sheet and how to figure out profit and loss. It's harder to pick up the other stuff on the fly.

    the central lements of a liberal arts education: wanting to work on the frontier, being able to find insights, choosing the right approach, reading the room, and inspiring others. Libearl arts graduates are comfortable with ambiguity. You can give them something that isn't fully shaped and tell them, "go figure out" and they do so. That's not true with other disciplines. Second, liberal arts graduates are good at weighing evidence and setting priorities. They can evaluate things. Third, they have a sense of context and history. That's important for investors. You need an ability to step back and look at the context.
