Top 6 Skills To Ensure Robots Won’t Replace You

Robots are replacing more and more jobs. Will they end the employment of humans? That’s a pressing question that we all want to know the answer. Even though some robots complement us to improve our productivity, some jobs have vanished.

But are there jobs that robots can’t perform? What are the skills that robots can’t gain so they won’t replace you?

1. Ability to empathize
Empathy is what makes us human. Although robots can interact with humans, they can’t connect with them. Regardless of how highly advanced they are, they can’t understand humans on an emotional level. That is, they’re not able to read someone’s feelings, work in teams, manage emotions and communicate
effectively. Empathy is one of the interpersonal skills that are vital for jobs that need an innate understanding of how a human feels. Can you imagine a robot calming a person during a surgical procedure?

2. Being creative
Having a creative mind enables you to create inventions and ideas that don’t exist yet. Although robots can analyze existing data and produce music or food at a certain level, they can’t be as creative as humans can. The initial idea or a concept is unique to humans. It’s especially true if you’re an inventor or an innovator.

In some jobs, creativity is still required. For instance, an architect can have original concepts that can build environment-friendly houses or buildings. Humans appreciate unique ideas. Thus, make sure that you hone your creative side.

3. Being a judge or a lawyer

If you’re a lawyer, then you can stop worrying now of being replaced because a robot can’t replace a lawyer or a judge. Bear in mind that not all conflict and ethics are black and white. A human sense determines a lot of things. The concept of should isn’t in the robot’s brain.

How you resolve and negotiate things are skills that robots can’t replace. There are several sides in an argument that can be correct. However, there are conflicts that emotions are involved.

But paralegals aren’t safe. The reason for this is that their work involves searching and gathering data, which
a robot can easily do well. Thus, if you’re studying law, you need to choose a position that is tech-proof.

4. Planner
You can’t entirely predict the future. And some jobs need people to understand unknown outcomes and navigate gaps in information. Physicians, for example, need to balance factors and priorities when they treat their patients. Entrepreneurs, too, require planning to help them decide on things based on a lot of factors.

5. Management
Those who are at risk to lose their jobs are in the technology department. That’s because if a task becomes automated digitally or mechanically, a robot can quickly take over. But the technology department still requires human beings to manage, create and fix things.

Automated systems require oversight. For example, bookkeeping can be done by an AI system. However, an accountant is still needed to check the errors. On the other hand, if you’re creating an ad, a computer can program it for you. But a marketing expert can double-check it if the announcement is aligned with the
brand.

The job of a landlord can’t also be automated. The reason for this is that it, in some cases, it requires human connection and empathy. However, landlords can take advantage of AI as well. For instance, using apps for landlords can make their life much easier.

6. Dexterity
Have you seen a robot picking up a pencil? If you have, then you’ve seen how clumsy it is. It’s also slow compared to humans. The reason for this is that humans can practice, thereby, giving them the agility and dexterity to perform a job well. Robots, on the other hand, can’t practice but they can be programmed.

Thus, if your job depends on dexterity and mobility, like gardening and housekeeping, then you’re safe. Although these posts aren’t highly paid, they’re not likely to be taken over by a robot

What shall we do?
The government must create an environment where entrepreneurs can flourish. Robots must not slow the pace of technology but to speed up the institutions. In this way, workers and managers can thrive. And if you wish to stay competitive in the AI age, you must develop skills that can help you stand out from the crowd.
