   A former Harvard admissions interviewer shares the 4 skills everyone should have by age 18

  NO.1 The ability to manage money

  理财能力

  "I definitely think students should be financially astute before they get to college and have at least read some books on money management," Bayor says.

  巴约尔表示:“我当然认为,学生们在进入大学之前应当对财政敏感,至少已经阅读了一些关于理财的书籍。”

  She explains that, for many college students, this will be the first time many of them are controlling their finances, and the academic rigors may distract them from doing so effectively.

  她解释道,对于很多大学生而言,这将是他们首次管理自己的资产,学术上的严谨性可能会分散他们有效理财的能力。

  To better manage their money, Bayor says students should know how to create a budget, live within their means, and not accrue credit card debt.

  巴约尔说道,为了更好地理财,学生们应该知道如何建立预算,依靠自己的方式生活,不背负信用卡债务。

  astute [ə'stut] 机敏的,精明的

  rigor ['rɪɡɚ] n. 严格,严酷,严密

  accrue [ə'kru] (使钱款/债务)积累

  NO.2 Time management

  时间管理

  "I also think students need to know how to balance their time, as college is about being fully self-motivated and structuring time to finish papers and classwork without having anyone looking over you to make sure you're doing the reading or completing assignments," Bayor says. "Your success is based on you."

  巴约尔表示:“我还认为学生们需要知道如何平衡他们的时间,因为大学无非就是完全依靠自我激励,组织时间完成论文和功课,而无需别人监督你来确保进行阅读和完成任务。你的成功在于你自己。”

  NO.3 Conflict resolution

  解决冲突

  Bayor says that by age 18, you should be able to resolve or negotiate conflict in a healthy way.

  巴约尔表示,到18岁,你应该能够以一种健康的方式解决或协调冲突。

  "A lot of students will be living with roommates for the first time in their lives, and conflicts will absolutely come up," she says. "How you resolve them, and the relationship skills you have, will add or detract a lot from your happiness with others."

  她说道:“很多学生将会是人生当中第一次和室友居住,冲突肯定是会出现的。你解决冲突的方式以及你所拥有的关系技能将会增加或减少你和他人之间的乐趣。”

  NO.4 The ability to stay positive

  保持积极的能力

  Bayor says that, most importantly, students need to know how to maintain a healthy outlook on life, since college, especially at the Ivy League level, can be stressful.

  巴约尔表示,学生们最重要的是需要知道如何维持健康的生活观,因为大学,尤其是常春藤级别的,学业压力会很大。”
