We are taught what we are taught the way we are taught to fit to a one-size-fits-all teaching plan. Each element is designed to build on previous elements thus reinforcing its validity. Later, once we are exposed to experiences, stimuli, or other input that is not congruent with what we were taught, we are inclined to dismiss it as wrong. The extent to which this is pronounced is, in many cases, correlated to the weight we placed on the evaluations from others about how well we were taught. We have subjugated ourselves to being taught, thus often abandoning our opportunities to learn.
I plan to expand further in future posts. I appreciate and welcome comments.
Thanks for reading. Have Great Day!
