“La respuesta le vino tras cinco largos días de deambular por las calles del Lower East Side, justo cuando estaba a punto de abandonar toda esperanza. Estaba sentado sobre una caja volcada, comiendo a deshora el almuerzo que le había preparado Regina, cuando se le ocurrió: ropa. Por todas partes a su alrededor se estaban abriendo tiendas: trajes, vestidos, monos de trabajo, camisas, faldas, blusas, pantalones, todas ellas prendas hechas y listas para vestir. Viniendo de un mundo donde la ropa se cosía a mano en casa o bien se encargaba a un sastre, esto era una revelación. Lo que más me maravilló no fue la mera cantidad de prendas, aunque esto fuera un milagro en sí mismo —escribiría Borgenicht años más tarde, ya consagrado como próspero fabricante de ropa para mujeres y niños—, sino el hecho que en América hasta los pobres podían ahorrarse la tediosa y laboriosa tarea de hacerse la ropa simplemente entrando en una tienda y saliendo con aquello que necesitaran. Ahí había un sector que prometía, casi emocionaba. Borgenicht”

“practical intelligence includes things like “knowing what to say to whom, knowing when to say it, and knowing how to say it for maximum effect.” It is procedural: it is about knowing how to do something without necessarily knowing why you know it or being able to explain it. It’s practical in nature: that is, it’s not knowledge for its own sake. It’s knowledge that helps you read situations correctly and get what you want. And, critically, it is a kind of intelligence separate from the sort of analytical ability measured by IQ. To use the technical term, general intelligence and practical intelligence are “orthogonal”: the presence of one doesn’t imply the presence of the other. You can have lots of analytical intelligence and very little practical intelligence, or lots of practical intelligence and not much analytical intelligence,”
