People skill or technical skill, the 1st priority?

Both are important, I understand.

But which came first in your adulthood? How did you prioritize them?

A rather complex poll:

  1. I learnt technical skill first, and then realized the importance of people skill
  2. I acquired people skill first, and then realized the importance of technical skill
  3. I fell sick before I able to learn technical skill
  4. I fell sick before I able to acquire people skill
  5. I fell sick and I had neither people nor technical skill
  6. I had both technical and people skill at the same time
  7. I had technical skill, but wasn’t able to acquire people skill because…
  8. I had people skill, but wasn’t able to learn technical skill because…

I prefer to have people skills, but having technical skills is a good way to make money.

I agree with you, yes.

I think I have people skills and want to develop technical skills later.

I fell sick at age 23 and had neither people nor technical skills at the time. I was in nursing school then and had to learn people skills while in nursing school. At least professional people skills. I was bad at personal people skills though. I treated everybody like one of my patient’s. I didn’t know how to relate any other way. I had to attend community college at the age of 38-41 to learn technical skills on computers. I learned medical technical skills on the job. I think people and technical skills are both equally important today.

I’ve adapted some people skills. Technical skills not so much
