In competent world, being ignorant is idiotic

Written ability test (WAT)   is a tool to test CAT aspirant on assessing overall communication and personality so it is also equally important and crucial component of CAT exam. 

 
We at MBA Rendezvous have started series of articles on "Written Ability Test" 
 
Today you will read WAT topic:  In competent world, being ignorant is idiotic
 
Ignorance is bliss. A decade back, this could have been the phrase or the maxim to live your life by and to swear by as a motto. However, in the last few years, the way the world works has changed drastically. Ignorance is no longer bliss. Ignorant can no longer be blissful. Contrary to what was believed, the ignorant is nothing but a fool. 
 
In this heavily competent world, one cannot afford to be ignorant. We live in an age where everybody gets only fifteen minutes of fame and the opportunity does not the knock the door very often. People get lucky only once in a while. This is the age where people have to grab opportunities that do not, otherwise, fall into their way. And to be able to do so, it is extremely important to be well-informed. In every step of life, it becomes mandatory for a person to know about as many things as is possible.
 
A management student is required to know of public relations to be able to manage contacts better. A journalist is supposed to know about economics to be able to report stories with depth. Similarly, it is required of administrators to know of laws to be able to defend others as well as themselves. Thus, in today’s world, where boundaries between even the specialized jobs have begun to get blurred, it has become all the more important to possess knowledge about different things.
 
If you are not as smart as your competitor is, chances are that he will overthrow at the first opportunity. Thus, not to occupy someone else’s posts or advance in one’s own profession but to also be able to retain one’s job, it is quite necessary to be well-informed and well-versed with many things. 
 
Learning different things can really help. No one knows when a person’s knowledge of a particular something proves to be useful in any other adventures. 
 
For instance, Steve Job’s knowledge of Calligraphy proved to be distinctively helpful when he designed the Macintosh. Thus, knowledge, of whatever field and whatever kind, never goes to waste. And so, acquiring it should not be a problem either. The new motto to live by has now changed to- Jack of all trades, master of none.
