How hard is it to follow instructions?

Instructions are usually clear and simple yet, no matter how bright you are I'm sure that there will be an instruction that you have either left out or one that you’re not clear about.
For example the brightest kid in class hands in their 50 page assignment, although the instructions clearly say’s no longer than 10 pages. This kid is thinking that they will score extra marks for the effort yet, they completely ignored the instruction and will be penalized.

Another example is page numbers and here I can say that I'm in fault. The simplest of instructions – all you have to do is use a click of a button and ‘poof’ its there yet, its very easy at times to miss on either one or two instructions. I think that when it comes to instructions, those that listen, that actually follow instructions clearly and those that don’t – their mark will determine the outcome.

Moving away from educational instructions, you have the normal day to day instructions which I believe is the hardest of all. It will be easy to get someone a cup of tea yet – to kill someone is an entirely different ball game. At the end of the day it all depends on morals and values and in what shit you will accept yourself to be involved in.
