school doesnt even test your intelligence it tests your memory
it tests my patience
it tests my ability to hold my pee
it tests my ability to keep calm and not slap a bitch
Except for math and physics, this is generally true. The curriculum in most schools isn’t designed to exercise students’ intuition and ability to recognize patterns.
What helped me growing up was that I had the vision to recognize that subjects were literally the context for the abstract knowledge I was being delivered and that way I could integrate each new bit of information I received into my general understanding of the world.
Had it not been for that bullshit above-average advantage, pre “teenage drug use and fights” genius capacity, I’d just be another guy cleaning windshields and pumping gas.
School doesn’t adequately train students to use their minds.
