Various modes of achievement edit

Humans are multi-dimensional and can excel in any of many dimensions For example, a great singer may not score well on academic achievement tests. Add a section to address this observation. Also, it seems we use this diversity to resolve dominance contests ambiguously and amicably. For example perhaps the winner of the hot-dog eating contest can feel good conversion with the leader of the math team.

It will also be helpful to address intelligence as a dimension here. We seem pretty good at estimating relative intelligence, but it is taboo to explicitly describe person A as more intelligent that person b. The theory of mute intelligence may be helpful here.
