-Willingness to be wrong
-Accepting you don't know anything about anything
-Willingness to learn
-Ready to apply and practice and make mistakes
-Organizing material into Principles and Models, without ego attachment to correctness
In studying anything, you want to be an observer first, and make judgements second.
Often when learning something, we rush ourselves into wanting to know the most "right" way, unaware that there are many ways, perspectives, and applications
Your ignorance will always be infinitely greater than your knowledge.
You cannot learn if you're unwilling to have your beliefs challenged in any way shape or form
Truth is proven by reality, not your opinions
many people claim to "want to learn" when in reality they simply want information that reinforces what they already think and believe
This filtering prevents any mental growth. Unless your beliefs are well aligned with truth you are misleading yourself
Information is not knowledge, it is information.
Ideas and information that are unwilling to be tested and can exist only in theory are not Truth
Truth proves itself by demonstration, without such proof, its unfounded theory
Principles exist regardless of changing opinions
Models are the environments that principles create and operate within
Models can change, principles can be expressed different ways
