Can Dungeons & Dragons Make You A Confident & Successful Person?

I have always shared this opinion, and this was a well done effort to make a case for this viewpoint. Plus, the copy of Television's Marquee Moon on vinyl helped win me over. ; )

The part where he discusses improvisation, with Miles Davis in the background, makes complete sense to me. I play jazz and I've always felt that a group of folks who could navigate chord changes quickly while improvising would make great D&D players. The skill set is essentially the same; the medium is different.

D&D is a great place to develop and nurture creative thinking. Even though I mostly DM, I LOVE to be involved with a good gaming group to see what solutions they come up with, and to be challenged to come up with responses on the fly to their ideas.
