RE: What is Teachability Index And Why This Knowledge Can Change Your Life

in #life5 years ago

Nice how they put a concept we've all certainly thought before, into words.

As I'm reading, I'm thinking there's probably some tension between the ability to learn and the ability to change, I mean from a psychological perspective. People who are willing to learn, probably think that knowledge will be permanent - what's the point of learning a law of physics if it's not gonna be true tomorrow? What's the point of learning a skill if it's gonna be irrelevant tomorrow?

Similarly, people who are very accepting of change - who might in fact be expecting it - might be more reluctant to invest energy into learning. They'd rather 'seize the day' and 'live the moment'.

So learning probably attracts more 'anal-retentive' individuals, let's say, rather than 'go where the wind blows' wave-riding change-welcomers.

Some of your other articles I see are nice too, so I'm Following! Not Upvoting tho cos my quota is done for the day! :P

Maybe the most prompting to change are better learners in a more unconscious way (?)

You also write very interesting content! Following and reading your posts!

Maybe. I've met many educated intelligent people who were very resistant to new ideas, whereas the supposedly 'unintelligent' were far more open.

Thanks for the follow!
