I dont think you were physically unable to understand

Of course not, because that's not a physical thing. I got the basics, but then it just got to the point where I sat there during the test, thinking I did it right, and it turned out I did it completely wrong. There was even a time when my teacher offered me extra time, and I sat there for one hour and nothing. I really couldn't understand. I thought I did before the test, but then it turned out I didn't because even if I did solve the problem, it wasn't really solved. It was all wrong.

just had to try to understand the theory from another angle.
All people study in different ways and I think its just about finding your groove. e.g some people like studying off diagrams, some people like teachers, some people like solo study etc. For example, some people in my cohort like to go to lectures and they go to those; however whenever I go I find them incredibly worthless as its much more time efficient to study by myself and then go to interactive tutorials.

I liked studying alone. That didn't help at all. Then I tried four different tutors and teachers, I even got some help from a guy who aced these tests like it was nothing. Seeing him do it so easy actually discouraged me even more though. I got frustrated with myself because I couldn't do it. I had it explained through and through and then when I tried doing that my brain just couldn't do it or just did it completely wrong.

When I was in highschool would occasionally teach some of my friends who were bad at maths and usuallly the reason they were bad was cause some part of the theory just didnt click with them so they were still left clueless. If I just went through systematically through what to do they would usually eventually got it. Some never understood but I more attributed to not putting enough effort into study; as in their baseline knowledge just wasnt there i.e I was teaching year 12 level maths to a person who had year 7 level of maths understanding. Even if a year 7 tried very very hard it would be difficult for them to successfully learn year 12 maths in the time of a year as it is spiral learning curve. (that being said I dont think its impossible as I strongly believe that highschool is a joke and any clown who puts in like 3 hours of study a day extracurricular could get top of the country).

Yep, pretty much sounds like my high school days. That's how those teachers did it with me too, and it was also true for me. I didn't get some of the theory. But well, I still don't today actually. I only passed because I knew the basics of those theories. Barely met the minimum to pass. It was pure torture, not to mention what happened later on.

If you are happy not doing study; then you should do what makes you happy.

That's what it came down to, yeah. Took a long time to realize, cope, and just get over it all. And I'm not joking when I say it threw me into deep depression. It still shows somewhat, but at least I'm happy now. I don't ever want to go through something like that again.

So yeah, basically, I worked super hard, and my brain is messed up because of this now. Not much I can do about it but do what keeps me happy and alive.
Believe it!

I'm low elo in game and low elo irl

Never went to university or had friends or a father

Feelsbadman

i mean its not to late to go to uni

How am i gonna pay for uni with a crap job and to what end?? What am i gonna study??

i dont fully know the systems in place in america for education and funding for courses but from what I hear you can get loans once you secure a spot in uni and dependant on the course they are more lenient to give out loans. E.g if you go into medicine I have heard that in America most insurance/loan companies are quite happy to give a loan to students. But yeah finances is obviously tough and outside of saving up money and running multiple jobs i'm not too sure about what you can do. Most other non-American countries typically have free/government rebated Uni education.

What job? the worlds your oyster man; literally be anything you want to be. Go into whatever field you are passionate/interested in. You want to be a doctor? be a doctor. You want to be a teacher, go be a teacher, you want to be a policeman; go be a policeman. If you arent passionate in any job then you can do one of two things imo. Go into a job just for the money; go into a job thats easy (or easy to get into) and pays alot of money. The job situation is different in America then in Australia so you'd prob have to do your research into what jobs these are. E.g in Australia the jobs that fit that description include mining where you get around 150k average Or you could just do whatever job you are currently doing if you dont have any ambition.

imo playing video games is ok in the short term but in the long run its important to go out and have ambition

Imo there is no answer

You do what you want

If you have goals, dreams, ambition, good

If you don't that's fine too

The trees are just as valuable as the bees.

I'm honestly just living day to day, looking forward to my next meal and waiting to expire

Last year was quite enjoyable as i had everything i wanted, now I'm without desire outside of simple joys

I have no goals and no dreams, no purpose to drive me onward and that is fine. Convincing myself that there is some grand thing i must achieve because others do that is a lie. It is not genuine for me. My mood changes. At times i am at peace with everything and at others i am filled with sorrow.

My understanding has changed as time has passed and recent experiences challenged my understanding and rekindled the fire of desire which has resulted in my present gloom.

I don't want to go to university as it will be a waste of time. I do not have children but a responsibility resembling it has crippled my sense of satisfaction. This has left me with the annoyance of needing more to once again attain the peace of the earlier years where even my humble occupation provided everything i wanted.

Back on topic i do believe in hierarchy as ive seen it in person and am convinced that i am a low quality individual of unimpressive stock

But i will remain content with that knowledge for even the worms are dignified creatures and no truly contemptible beings exist

@SirFeed

The only time i had serious drive was in highschool maths

I started in what is called Algebra 1, the lowest maths class in school, in 9th grade and i was overcome with shame

I was too embarrassed to walk around carrying that book so i vowed to get into calc BC by 12th grade, the highest level class, and i did

I took summer classes, studied independently, and so on and i got into calc BC and AP physics C because i REALLY wanted it

My story sorta supports your argument but i always had an aptitude for maths

I only got a low placement at first because i failed every class in 8th grade due to personal reasons

My way of thinking is different than that of others and it shows by what i can and cannot learn

My natural potential was high i just needed effort to reach it, effort a less capable student would need to reach a lower level

This logic falls apart when you remember that genetic limitations exist. Still remember the bio med student that wanted to be a surgeon but couldnt pass anything hands on because he had wicked problems with shaky hands tied to his genetics that he couldnt correct

How are people making comments such as "if only people tried harder they could be as smart as X neuroscientist" and not getting completely dumpstered in this thread?

athletics is whole different story though. i think the difference between a michael jordan and that fat kid across the street is smaller than elon musk and any random working at mcdonalds. in other words, i think athleticism is something you can overcome far easier than intellect (if that's possible at tall). so i never really bought into the "there's only 1 lebron in the world XDd". well no. i think there are many lebrons or lebron-like people in the world. they just don't apply themselves. whereas applying yourself will never make you as smart as warren buffet.


and this is even worse LOL!

The intellectual and athletic elite got there not by forcing themselves out of bed and dragging their feet to the gym or to hit the books, it was a series of seamless and obvious choices.

You can start out in community college before transferring to a university (if your major permits it). Even if you're well out of high school I'm pretty sure there's some really good financial aid options available

If you're really busy and money is a huge issue you can take less credits too. Unless you're literally living check by check I feel there's always options to go back to school

I'm willing to agree with SirFeed insofar as I think that intelligence is mostly nurtured over being a phenotype thing. To what extent will naturally be tricky to ascertain. And that's disregarding disabilities that make learning stuff harder or easier in our society, like autism spectrum, dyslexia, dyscalculia (sp?) etc.
However, I disagree with the notion that anyone can get anywhere if they work hard enough. A lot of someone's intelligence is established in early childhood, by role models and activities that the child does long before there's a notion of "I have to work hard to get smart". I'm quite sure that these initial values have a very significant impact on the intelligence of an individual, much more in fact than hard work.
Everything has an end, except for the sausage. It has two.

in america, university is very expensive. i will tell you right now, Texas A&M charges close to $7,000 per semester just for tuition, not including books or supplies or housing or cafeteria access or w/e. People who take out loans end up paying thrm back over like 15 years because of how outrageously huge they and the interest rates are. Loans are terrible. You pay out of pocket, and while the government DOES give grants and things very often, it is always expensive.
Why is it called 'common sense' when it is so rare these days?
