Why do we subject ourselves to the stress of people telling us how good we are? Is there another way to educate ourselves?

It strays from the path of understanding, and into a whole new path of super-picky correctness.

Isn’t it all just a degree-cranking-out process? Where is the humanization of the educational process?
