Technique and skill

What’s the difference between the two can anyone give examples I’m confused?:frowning:

Right from websters :slight_smile:

2 a : the ability to use one’s knowledge effectively and readily in execution or performance b : dexterity or coordination especially in the execution of learned physical tasks
3 : a learned power of doing something competently : a developed aptitude or ability


1 : the manner in which technical details are treated (as by a writer) or basic physical movements are used (as by a dancer); also : ability to treat such details or use such movements <good piano technique>
2 a : a body of technical methods (as in a craft or in scientific research) b : a method of accomplishing a desired aim

I think technique is how you execute something you know. Knowing how to do that something is skill.

Anyone else?

Great input thanks! Don’t babies have a technique in crawling yet is this something they know? I get confused in this grey area of nature and nurture.
