I think we excel at self-learning.Interestingly enough I'd argue a lot of knowledge I've acquired, especially over the last 3-4 years, has been at my own accord, rather than at the hands of a lesson or a person telling me. How do I learn my material? That's an interesting question. I think if I just have an interest in the subject, whatever way its taught to me, I soak it up. If it's something I don't value personally then it's harder. Hmmm maybe I need to think about it a bit more haha.
