Re: Discovering How to Learn Smarter
Responded on two levels:
1) re: self-esteem:
There is a difference between self-esteem as accumulated positivity and self-esteem as a buoyant absence of self-negativity. Of the two major domains of unhealthy learning, maladaptive cognitive schema and unconscious emotional aversions, the later, and in particular ‘mind-shame’, is largely the result of learned self-disesteem.
2) learning about the brain
Learning, first-person, about how to extend your participation in your own learning in a more subjectively learning oriented way is entirely different than learning about your brain.
