Learning - some thoughts

* I think you learn better if you are exhilarated (at least excited) about what you're exploring. This is probably because the neurons form better connections when the signals are stronger. (I'm hand waving of course). Also I saw a documentary where people appeared to remember things better under strong stimuli (palms placed on ice blocks)

* Fear / anxiety can cripple creative thinking / free thought (again no proof, just my intuition)
