There is always a fuss about being experienced and that the experienced person knows best. That may be or may not be true for many people. People tend to believe what they want regardless of the evidence presented to them. The question remains, how does that help the experienced person when their mindset is unchangeable. This is the difference between the people who are set in their ways and those who want to become critical thinkers. It does not matter how much experience you have, you are not growing mentally or emotionally. Experience means growth. One of the reasons I admire Benjamin Franklin who says "Without continual growth and progress, words such as improvement, achievement and success have no meaning." Learning should be ongoing and learning to grow as a person should always be priority at least I think so.
