What's in your head

This page introduces a section of short notes on how you might be hindered in your understanding by what you already know. If you are terribly open-minded, you can ignore this section.

Some people seem to learn by fitting new information into existing paradigms in their heads. If they are confronted with B, and they don't understand B initially, and then realize that B is like A which they DO understand, then they begin to understand B. The "if you've seen one, you've seen 'em all" phenomenon. That's helpful, but not always the whole story, and if you try to make it the whole story, you can block yourself from understanding some things. This collection of notes tries to point out those sticking points.
