Can you teach somebody to think like you do?

I remember one time Grandfather and I were having a conversation and I asked him if he thought he could teach others to think and perform the way he did and he said  "I can't teach you to do what I do, but I can teach you how to bob and weave."

Jake Ehrlich Sr. was a prize fighter before he was a lawyer so this answer did not come as a surprise.

Then I asked him if he had ever met anybody like himself and he responded "There is nobody like me!!! Nobody can duck and weave and shadowbox like me."

It may sound like like he was bragging, but as Dizzy Dean the great baseball player once said, "It ain't bragging if you can do it."
