That will end well... \s
I’m pretty sure if they scanned my brain they’d exclaim, “That’s amazing! Her math portion is almost non-existent! And one drink neutralizes even that tiny sliver!”
I can believe this. People’s brains are wired up differently and we learn best in different ways.
I CANNOT CANNOT CANNOT learn by being told things—just can’t take in and retain information received through my ears. I learn by reading, or (preferably) by reading and then doing the thing with my hands. If my life or the lives of my children were on the line I still could not remember what I hear. Something isn’t hooked up for aural processing.
It’s genetic. My father was this way, and so are my children. But we are intelligent and talented, and we do well in college and grad school—with the stipulation that we learn in our own way.
A quick PET scan to elucidate our learning issues could have saved us a lot of time, grief, self-chastisement, and loss of motivation and self-esteem.
Don't hate me because I'm smart.
Size matters? The Neanderthals were more intelligent than we are?/S.
