At first glance I might agree with these statements but thinking carefully about it, it’s irritating.

Who defines what makes your experience worthy or not? What makes people chose some over others? See what I mean? Now, you are getting irritated, aren’t you?

In reality, it’s all about the qualifications.

Human being react to lines. The more lines they see, the more qualified they think the individual is.
