Teach Strategy to Teenagers

Sun Tzu taught that strategic skills must be taught. They are not instinctive. A recent study comparing the decision-making of teenagers to adults drive home this point. An interesting aspect of this article is the inability of the scientists to express the concept of strategic decision-making. The closest they can come is to call it "the gist" of the situation.
"Young people don't get it," Reyna said. "They don't get the gist of a situation. Gist is based on one's culture, background and experiences, and experience is what teens lack."
