You can. It's called being a Professor.
Because you don't need to be smart to make money. You just need to focus your life on making money. Look at people like Donald Trump. Great at the business of making money, no doubt about it but smart? LOL!!
I agree...it's sad how when it comes to getting a job that most people are more likely to be hired by "who they know" rather than their degree or how much they know...experience does help...but a lot of it is political. A bachelor's degree doesn't seem significant anymore. I hope that things change. There are too many people that need jobs and are qualified for them that aren't given the opportunity.
I doubt that you'd get money for having extreme or no Selfconsciousness, since that's not healthy.
That would be great. :)
Because its work that creates wealth. Intellect alone is useless.
