Most People Think This Is A Smart Habit, But It’s Actually Brain-Damaging

A knock on the head isn’t the only way to “impair” our brains. If we think of damage in broader terms, then brain damage can be caused by anything that physically changes our brains in a way that makes us less intelligent or functional. Using this definition I’d make the case that much of the learning that people do on their own, which we usually consider a positive thing, might actually be doing many people more harm than good.

First, whenever we learn something new, our brain physically changes.

Next, junk learning can cause physical changes in our brain, which then hurts our ability to function effectively.

Finally, junk learning is like a disease that spreads throughout the brain and causes more junk learning.

  • Learning physically changes our brain.
  • Much of the learning that people are exposed to by default is junk learning.
  • Junk learning effectively equivalent to brain damage and impairs our ability to function in the world.
  • Junk learning is like a disease that spreads throughout the brain and causes more junk learning.
