Can we move away from verbal expression seen as measurement of competence

Not all of us can express ourselves very well verbally, not all of us are good talkers. Why are we denied the chance to express ourselves in a way that we are confident in? Albert Einstein once  said: “Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” I beg to agree with him in this, why competence is always measured by how we express ourselves verbally only why don’t we get a chance to express ourselves in writing in those interviews, why do we always have to give verbal presentations when pitching our ideas, why are we not given an opportunity to present ourselves in writing. Is this the only standard that will work for everyone? Can competence be only measured verbally? Many companies lost the good employees who could have transformed them into something big because they only conducted the interviews verbally and they missed that good candidate because he/she couldn’t express himself/herself orally, they only measured the candidate’s competence verbally and denied him/her the chance to express himself/herself in writing something he/she is good at. So many investors wasted their money funding the business which later flopped because they only wanted the hear the business pitch verbally, they missed a good viable  idea which could have made so much money because all they wanted was to hear the candidates presenting their business picth orally rather than reading them. Think about what Albert Einstein said…. You can’t use judge everyone’s ability using one form of measurement. Give us a chance to express ourselves in writing, it’s time to consider it or else most people will continue to suffer.
