Some people are very dynamic in dealing with people no matter their their education or experience. An uncle spoke 9 European languages. He got a gov't job. Was sent to Japan. They loved him and requested him all the time. He never spoke Japanese but he learned to.love fish raw or cooked. He'd always hated it.
