When a person is talking to another person and shares with them that they are educated, the person receiving the compliment often says thank you and leaves it at that.

The most important aspect of being educated in the field of culture is to begin your research trying to remove all aspects of your bias. It is after all, bias that is the downfall of the validity within research.
