I hate math, so, naturally I was awful at it my entire life, I barely passed a few grades in middle and high school due to it, even though I had additional post-school classes of it. Same thing with chemistry and I think physics, basically all classes I really disliked.
On the other hand, I completely learned English by my 12.th year just by watching tv, despite not living anywhere near a English speaking country, more recently I also learned Russian in just 2 years and went from understanding 5-10% of dialogues in movies to 99,9% and being able to have complex conversations with Russians myself, a few years ago I learned the Greek alphabet in less than a week and I still remember it despite never really using it again, so I guess that I am somewhat good at languages, even though I don’t devote time to learning them, but learn them on the fly, but if I did devote time, I would be even better.
I can also remember a bunch of military, political and historical things no one else cares about, once we had a test in high school and I was interested in the topics of the (history) class and despite me being one of the laziest and worst students, I got an A, just by listening to the lecture, without studying, while a few of hardworking students got A- and B+, most of the class just got C’s, and it’s not just that specific test, I had the same thing happen a few times, basically if I’m interested in the topic, I get great grades even without learning the lecture, but if I am not interested in the topic, I can learn it for hours and days, but it won’t help.
I did several iq tests on the internet, which are of course not 100% correct, but nonetheless I usually got results like 100 to 110, which would make me pretty much average, so why do I have so much trouble learning things I dislike, but no trouble learning things I like?
