Learning as vibes

Liked You’ll forget most of what you learn. What should you do about that? by Adam Mastroianni (Experimental History)

Knowledge fades fast, especially when you don’t use it. In the words of the late, great psychologist Hermann Ebbinghaus, “All sorts of ideas, if left to themselves, are gradually forgotten”

Feelings, or vibes, on the other hand, seem to stick around a lot longer.

Connection here to facts not convincing people; feelings shape people’s opinions.
