The most interesting subjects I’ve ever learned have nothing to do with the subject I learned. It has more to do with the teachers. (Those teachers being people, books, or strategies of learning.)
Everything is amazingly interesting if you’re learning it in the right way.
A good teacher doesn’t make mundane subjects interesting. A good teacher makes subjects that look mundane shine for the amazing factors that most people never even notice. Once someone does start to notice those amazing factors, they’ll permanently find that subject interesting. They’ll appreciate the subject at the very least. In many cases, one good teacher can define a student’s life by just pointing out why one subject is interesting. That can hook the student for life.
Most teachers (and again, I’m still referring to teachers as used earlier in this post,) are not good teachers. They present information. A student that has already been hooked on the subject will learn it but the student that hasn’t been hooked just tries to prepare for the test so they don’t fail.
Yea… sure… we’re all beautiful unique human beings but never forget how similar we really are. When one person has found a way to fall in love with a subject, it may have something to do with their own uniqueness but more times than not it has to do with them seeing something that the rest of us failed to see.
Some people see math and see beautiful perfection. Pure logic. Some people see boring numbers that usually mean absolutely nothing beyond the most basic transactions. Sure paying a buck for a candy bar is important but who cares about the cubed root of 17 or imaginary numbers?
Some people see literature and see that same logic and perfection (in a slightly less obvious form.) Others see boring words that mean absolutely nothing beyond the most basic transactions. Sure, I want to know I’m buying a candy bar but who cares about the difference between creamy and fluffy.
My point is: we all care about those candy bars. Figure out how what you want to learn is related to those candy bars of life and you’ll always be interested in learning it.
