I just wanted to ask the opinion Now which do you think is more important? Knowledge or Experience? Is Knowledge? we can be a lot of science as well as add insight into the more spacious, but what if we have a vast knowledge but we did not have the experience .. Is Experience? experience if we can also learn and gain knowledge as well, but if there's only experience with no knowledge, how would it? What are your thoughts?

According to me, the more important it is KNOWLEDGE .. The reason: 1. That knowledge includes knowledge which can be verified. 2. Knowledge is not limited to science alone, but also includes insight in applying / applied sciences. If a capital of experience alone, we are not necessarily true. To be sure, without knowledge, we know where that can be verified. But it's really two things mutually supportive way human life .

I think that in many ways, both do in fact go hand in hand. Knowledge is something that is rather something that is going to really help us press on in life. On the other hand, there are many times where the right kind of knowledge is something that is important but you can have a lot of knowledge that is useless. Without the practical experience to back it up that is. It really is something that is depending on the task at hand. There are sometimes where knowledge is king. Then there are many other times where experience is something that is really something that is going to set you right. I do think that a little bit of both is something that can be a great thing. Of course, experience is something that comes with time, as knowledge comes a bit quicker. Naturally there is no reason why both experience and knowledge cannot both go hand in hand. Knowledge can be something that can set you up for experience for sure.

Hi Dina! Both are important...It is far great if we have both knowledge along with the experience. But it may start form one of them too like having knowledge without experience or having an experience without knowledge. It may start that way and once it start that way you will gain the other one without you even know it.(^^)

In my opinion Knowledge becomes perfect throughout the experiences, other way we can say experience helps us to gather a sound knowledge. But we need both of them, we cannot fully depend just on a person who has not sound knowledge on a particular thing. At last would like to share a famous quote "Knowledge is Power".

Knowledge is valuable and significantly important as it has it's own place in each individual's life. Experience on the other hand can be gained by starting at some point or other and at the same point in time keeping in mind that there are many more things to do. As one initiates the process of exploring more and more new things one gains more knowledge. To gain knowledge is a never ending process and as one learns more and more new things, it is the increase in knowledge of that person that takes place. Experience on the other hand it can be related to a specific and particular field that a person knows very well, but then to be expert in your field and to win the competition each individual must have knowledge on his side because knowledge is always an asset.

i think experience is more important for example you can know everything there is to know about horses you can read and know how to ride without ever getting on a horse but there are some things you just can know without the experience such as the way it feels to gallop or be flying through the air because you done got bucked off life teaches you lessons from experience with experience you will become more knowledgeable

To ask which of them is more important is similar to asking which is more important for the bird, the right wing or the left wing? Knowledge can be acquired even without experiencing a particular situation. Humans have the amazing ability to learn complex things from different sources.

There is a guy who had no knowledge about how a Diesel engine works but he knows how to repair it very well. He acquired this knowledge by observing and assisting the person who had employed him. Knowledge is good when one is doing practical work to be equipped with experience, but its so limited in our daily life if one learns something (in written literature without practice) and expect to excel.

You can have knowledge without experience. Aka youngsters that just graduated university as engineers, lawyers, doctors and so on. They have knowledge but they lack the experience, meaning they know "how to" just theoretical. On the other hand, experience without knowledge is impossible - of course knowledge you got by accumulating experience is not the size and quality of 3-5 years of university but is there. There is no way to get experience without understanding what you do. This is like learning thru trial and error. So, none is always better. Sometime is better to have knowledge and then start accumulate experience. Sometime is better to be experienced with whatever knowledges you got while getting experience.

Both knowledge and experience are important and they are just related to each other.. if u dont have any experience you will not gain knowledge,,although you can get knowledge through reading but it is very different when you actually have the experience..so i think experience is more important than knowledge..

There is no hesitation that knowledge delivers power to the individual. For instance, as a teenager we would not develop mentally or informally without information, which is the fundamental process required for attaining knowledge.
