@scottalanmiller Your contrived difference are a bit extreme, but a valid thought concept.
It is unlikely any 3 year experience person will have a depth that the 13 year person does, but I certain could name names that prove your point. That is the exception IMO.
This came up today and while the names were changed, the years were not.
Like Elon Musk I'd pick the fastest learner and the smartest person - which could be either one of them.
