Default True story

This conversation actually took place:

One Physical therapist : "He's what I call the ultimate clinician"

Me " What makes someone an ultimate clinician"

One Physical therapist: : "Well, he just loves treating patients and doesn't waste time thinking about it"

Seriously...true conversation(I figured it was a swipe at me....for thinking too much)

Who would have thought that thinking would make you the penultimate clinician.

Anti-intellectualism has been a constant threat winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that “my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.”

Isaac Asimov

It's grown even worse. Now it's, "My ignorance is actually better than your knowledge."

Come on guys. The therapist is obviously a natural that does not let something like knowledge get in the way of something they "just know".
