Is a B-average optimal?

Written by Devon Olson, Research & Education Librarian

Have you ever wondered whether you should challenge yourself more? Whether you should try a new subject even if you might not excel? In a new article out of the University of Arizona, cognitive scientists find that the optimal middle ground between taking the easy way out and failing lies in being wrong 15% of the time. So maybe you should shoot for an 85%, not that straight A average.

    I think the easy way out has a catch somewhere all the time. I agree with the 85% and I think it doesn’t actually matter end of the day.
