I appreciate your learning style. I just have a hard time squaring it with your apparent tolerance for Trump’s anti-intellectualism. He doesn’t read primary, secondary, or even tertiary sources. He brags about going with his gut and not reading or listening to alternative points of view. Indeed, he openly admits he can’t stand to read anything more than short bullet point presentations. Intelligence agencies have had to radically change how they present information to him given this preference on his part. Nuance and context seem positively toxic to him. Based on both his words and deeds he appears to be the very antithesis of your approach to learning. That said, I’m giving you a couple of claps because I genuinely value and to a large degree share your learning style and openness to new ideas/methods.
