I have been thinking about this for a while: What is the use of studying? I know that some of the subjects we use in school become our basis in our future jobs, but most of these things don't even apply to most jobs! I mean if you wanted to become a tailor, than what the hell would chemistry do you good??..... So what do you guys think?


I know subjects at school are not really that pointless for example, like Math and English. I mean we do need to know how to count and read right?

I see. But still if you're not really gonna use them them what's the point learning them? Please exclude Math, English, Science and Computer(Nowadays, you really need to know how a computer works).

They teach you everything early on so your career choice later on would be more expansive.

ummm lets see.... psychology, philosophy, logic.... its really not needed for me but then, you should also learn different fields...

philosophy can help you in a lot of ways eventho its not needed

psychology so that you know how a human mind and behavior owrks..

logic is a part of philosophy but then it can help you think logically and is really good use in debates...
