If parents showed more of themselves, would kids develop better, healthier coping skills?
As for the question, I don't think that parents secrecy has anything to do with their children addictions. For personal experience I can tell that good parents (good as in communicative) can also have addicted children. And those parents who actually only whine about their problems, might also cause damaged children. I think that you're trying to say that "most people addictions are because they seek perfection, because their parents taught them to be perfect" And I just don't think that's the situation. That might be an excuse thou... The real reasons I would point out is that people are just bored, and when trying to feel better they begin something they can't stop... Or that they have a really damaged life, maybe with terrible parents (not because they don't speak about themselves, but because they are actually TERRIBLE) and they try to get rid of their lives... I can't imagine how can someone begin an addiction only because they feel stressed about seeking perfection, that's actually contradictory... Only steroids and the like, when athletes want to improve, but that might be a whole other discussion Nonetheless, parents do have to talk about their problems. Not to avoid addictions, but to help their relationships with their children, and, well, to make this a better society... The only way of improving, is to base our knowledge on our elder's, and if our parents had the same problems as us, they might have some wise words to say...

The Relentless Learner has become the most important person in the worldwide search for talent. How can we identify them?
Well, I think that the question is quiet ambiguous. Why should Relentless Learners be identified? and What kind of support do they need? I suppose that you refer to the economical side, that these people should be given money so they invent tools. Or do you mean that society must help them to develop their abilities/knowledge? Whatever the case I don't think they need to be identified, as they actually show up all by themselves. If they have something to invent, it's pretty much probable that they will make the plan and search funding, and the best applications will get them... Think of "best" as the "most affordable, most practical, most commercial" invention around there. If you talk about abilities, they might seek help if they need, or look around for contests if they desire win rewards for it. So the only answer i can find is that government and the different economical systems should give more opportunities for anyone to submit their ideas. If a Relentless Learner needs help for something useful to be made, he'll find it. If he just wants to keep on learning, he'll find it easily. If he has a bad idea (unuseful, unaffordable) it shouldn't be made anyway.
