  1. It depends on what area. Knowledge in itself gives a certain outlook, the ability to navigate in the world, in related and completely different areas from the main activity. This is the meaning of university education!

    But any activity necessarily implies skills and abilities.

    The organization of knowledge and its application-even only in theoretical constructions-is already a skill! That is, a desk scientist who seems to be dealing with “pure knowledge” has a lot of skills in working with information.

    In general, this is a single bundle, the methodological basis of any teaching: ZUN. Knowledge-Skills – Skills.

    Knowledge – theory.

    Skills – the ability to apply knowledge in practice in a calm study or work environment.

    Skills – the ability to apply skills freely, automatically and flexibly in any stressful situation – without thinking. There is only one way to translate a skill into a skill: a very large number of repetitions. To indicate the order offhand – from 2000 to 5000 repetitions in changing conditions. Of course, it can be less or more.

    In short, for general development, support by the cultural and associative level of the main activity, you can gain general erudition: “just knowledge”.

    And for any activity – of course, it is necessary to develop the knowledge that is special for this activity into skills and abilities.
