People: 1=10%; 2=70%

How is it? Majority of kids can act the fool just for fun and many adults can't even accept the idea of doing it. Do kids have a bigger capacity than adults? The capacity I am talking about is to ignore the shame.

Some famous people (like William James and Albert Einstein) have talked about the myth about 10%. It says something like this: "Human beings use less than 10% of their capacity." I feel this this belief may be true.

People are really important and helpful for every kind of activity. One people can only work 10% of a solution; but two people can provide more than 50%, maybe 70%. This is because people can help with parts of the work, or at least give us feedback and nagging.

Four-stars General Collin Luther Powell said: "Use the formula P40/70, in which P stands for the probability of success and the numbers indicate the percentage of information acquired. Once the information is in the 40 to 70 range, go with your gut." You can't move by feeling only. You need some kind of certainty; but a 100% certainty costs too much resources and time that you should not spend.

People are a real boost!
