I can retire

I was playing with the “custom GPT” feature of ChatGPT. I asked it to build a bot to answer questions based on content in this blog. And then I started trying it out. Here is a sample:

explain the studs and fighters theory

The “Studs and Fighters” theory is a framework used to describe two distinct types of competitive individuals or entities, often in the context of sports, business, or any field involving competition. Here’s a casual explanation:

  • Studs: These are the naturally talented. They’ve got the skills, often inherent, that make them stand out with seemingly less effort. In sports, think of the athlete who executes plays with grace and makes it all look easy. In business, it could be that entrepreneur whose ventures just always seem to bloom.
  • Fighters: These folks might not have the natural flair of the studs, but boy do they have grit. They’re the ones who compensate for any lack of natural talent with sheer hard work and perseverance. They fight for every point, work relentlessly, and often overcome obstacles through tenacity. Think of the athlete who may not be the most skilled on the field but is always the last to leave practice.

The theory goes that in the long run, the Fighters tend to outperform the Studs because their success is not reliant on inherent talent, which can plateau, but on continuous improvement and adaptation. However, when a Stud also has the mindset of a Fighter, that’s when you get those once-in-a-generation superstars. It’s not just about what you’re born with or what you’re willing to do; it’s about combining the best of both worlds if you can.

who came up with this thoery?

The “Studs and Fighters” theory was popularized by the blog “noenthuda.com,” which is run by Karthik Shashidhar. He formulated this concept based on observations in various competitive fields, and it has since been referenced in discussions about performance, talent, and success. The theory encapsulates the dichotomy between natural talent and hard-earned skill, offering a lens through which to view competition and development in individuals.

Not bad, I must say! This took about five minutes to program.

I’ve published the bot. You can find it here. According to ChatGPT itself, you don’t need a premium ChatGPT account to USE this. Have fun, and stress test!
