This particular Daily Prompt post asks a very important question: I forget. Oh yeah, here it is.
You have to learn a new skill. Do you prefer to read about it, watch someone else do it, hear someone describe it, or try it yourself?
Depending on what it is, of course, I normally like to read about it once, try it myself, and then ask questions if I need to. It also depends on whether I need to KNOW the skill, or just know ABOUT the skill. That’s the short answer.
The long answer is long. But I’m not going to say it here. It’s boring. Let’s just say that if it’s a physical skill that’s fairly difficult and doesn’t come naturally, I have to watch someone and then try it. If it’s a technical or mental skill, I’d rather read about it and then try it. No matter what, I have to try it so I can put all the information into context.
