This is a topic that I've started for the Wind Traders in our Stormspire forum section, but I would like to see how the rest of the forum can compare.
I'm a strong believer that playing a game like World of Warcraft isn't always just a colossal waste of time, and that there are many principles you learn in it that can be carried over and applied to real life situations.
So, the discussion can go two ways:
A) What real life skills has playing the WoW Economy taught you, and how have you applied them in real life?
B) And/or, what real life skills haveyou used when playing the WoW Economy, and how have you implemented them to your advantage?
I look forward to hearing your opinions folks!
Feel free to throw in other aspects of the game as well if you wish such as pvp reaction times and decision making, or pve team work and critical thinking.
