Well this was a topic that I know little about. :) This was actually fairly interesting to me on several levels as it exposes how social norms dictate how individuals view one another. It really goes to show that we as a society need to evaluate people not so much upon their outward appearance, but by the quality of their work.

Along the path of relating this to education itself I can see how taking the strong points a person exhibits and helping to bring them to the surface much like picking out a hair style or article of clothing to suit a persons structure. We must do the same with our students drawing upon their strengths and helping them to better express them.
