Growing up, we heard that only the strongest survive, and while that may have been applicable in some way, possibly still applies, it is not what keeps us alive. The most intelligent don’t always survive either. I am sure we all know a super smart, yet dumb person. I am not speaking of the educated, although that applies here too, no, some of the smartest people wouldn’t ensure survival either.
When we speak of the adaptable surviving, are those the same people as most responsive to change, or most open to change? I don’t think so. Adaptable people are not always open to change, but perhaps they fall under most easily coerced? That doesn’t sound like responsive to change, responsive indicating there is a thought to change, a conscious choosing of change.
