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 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

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!
