How do you impart your knowledge? Say you teach somebody something. Do you teach everything you know or do you keep some facts for yourself? Be truthful.

Whenever I read something useful, interesting and educative, I read that to my son and wife, so that they will also gain some knowledge. In fact one hour or so, they join me in mylot and read some of the interesting responses. We have a good collection of books and all the members read those books. It is always better to share the knowledge and if you listen to others rather than talking too much, it is always beneficial to the listener.

I agree. That's why God has given us one mouth and two ears (LOL) Anyway, i wonder, with the family, we always share. But what about outsiders, people at work who wants to learn from you. Do you stick to the same theory?

I am a trainer basically therefore I go about teaching people whenever they come and ask. Like people say nobody can steal the knowledge like people steal the money, one should not keep it with onself. Just dessiminate it.

If I know something that can help other people, I will whole heartedly share anything I know, unless it is a situation where someone could get hurt, then I might hold back, but usually I am a very open person.

I cannot say it depends on the circumstances really, because if I am imparting knowledge to someone, then it is everything that I know. For example, when I used to work I wrote out a Manual telling how each job was to be done, step by step. I help nothing back because I viewed it that if something ever happened to me, then one of my staff could take over. It actually did happen too, when one weekend I got extremely sick and was rushed to Hospital for emergency surgery, but my staff just got out the manual and did the job by following it. Also I had the opinion that if anyone ever wanted my job, they were welcome to it. There was no way I ever wanted to be working with someone who was out to knife me, so it was better to let them know everything and if they were good enough to do the job, then it was theirs. It never actually happened like that though, and I suspect that was because I was so open about everything. The best way to sum it up is that I knew my job, I was comfortable with it and myself and I performed my job to the best of my ability. I also realised that my work superiors realised how I felt as well as my ability, and of course that made me much more comfortable taking the stance that I always did. When it comes to teaching children new things, I will impart all the knowledge I have, subject to their age, maturity and the risks involved. If I think that there are some risks, then I believe it is better not to tell the child much but rather set about getting them interested in something less harmful. The best

Its a nice approach. I think its not knowing to do the job but its the way you do it or the quality of your work that is important. Thanks a lot for a nicely detailed response.

As far as teaching someone my job, I do hold back a little and don't teach everything. Job security you know, don't want to be replaced that easy and give the boss the goods, so to speak. When it comes to teaching my children, I try to give them all the information they need to succeed at whatever they are trying to accomplish. So for me, I guess it comes down to the value of what is being taught and to whom I'm teaching.

i read books and other stuff or browse to the internet to gain more and enough knowledge on things and unusual stuffs. and i am not the type of person who don't share what i know on the things i know. if it could be a help to others then why won't i share it to them, right?! as long as im a help to other, then i am in!
