Now the test itself is a lot more interesting than many people think it is. First of all, it’s a copy of a test that I have done on a General Knowledge Test (GKT) that many students are given when they take the Prince2 tutorial. So what happens is that you are given a series of questions on various topics and the true genius of this test is that it includes both factual and non-factual questions.
Yes, I know it sounds funny but it’s true – it is a copy of the same test that is in my online GKT guide called “Prince: The Rise to Power” and this tutorial were used by many students before they started taking the online tutorials. The reason I chose this example to test for a practice session in the tutorial is because it is very similar to the material that is being taught in the full game. So basically you’re learning real world principles that you would find on any normal GKT that you’d have to do in the real world.
One of the most important ideas is that knowledge is power. This idea is so useful because it helps you understand the concept of “power corrupts” in education. The quote in the Prince2 Tutorial is “I think that knowledge corrupts, but that’s not saying that it doesn’t also corrupt people.
And of course it doesn’t end there, because if you’ve ever seen the first time or two of a General Knowledge Test, you will notice that they make things really hard to understand. Here is a simple example of what I’m talking about. You have to describe something using a real life example like, “Is there a man called Bill who lives in a house with a garden in England”.
Okay, well if you’re thinking “Well of course there is”, then you’d better ask yourself some questions like “Can you describe a man called Bill who lives in a house with a garden in England using only a single word? A name?” Or “Is there any other way to tell the story that I just described”? If you answered “No” then that means that you don’t fully understand the concept of power or the concept of the meaning of the term power.
There is only one way to describe the power, the Power Principle. That’s the value of being able to teach and learn from experience. By teaching other people, you can learn the lessons that they have already learned, thus you gain an understanding of the world around you. This is an important skill that you must have if you are going to excel in education.
But how can you possibly teach people who haven’t fully understood the power principle to take action by using just one word, a single word, one sentence? If you’re a teacher you must be able to break down the power principle into pieces and then reassemble them so that they are much easier to understand.
You cannot teach an entire class to take action by breaking down the power principle but you can show them how to use the same power principle in action. When you are doing this you will see that the Power Principle is not just about knowing one word. It’s about knowing that you are a capable of achieving anything that you want to achieve and that you don’t need to necessarily have power in order to be powerful.
The Power Principle basically means that anyone with power in the world has the opportunity to be powerful. It’s about using the right skills to be able to take full advantage of the opportunities that life brings us.
This power principle is very similar to the raid log example because the log doesn’t actually tell you what to do or what you should do. it just tells you what it is that you should do. What you should do to end up in the game.
