Standardized tests are the biggest joke. They don’t measure intelligence, they try to control the learning experience. They try to control those that don’t fit. People that have learning disabilities think differently. That’s what allows them to find solutions or discoveries outside of the box. These people usually have higher intelligence than the so-called normal? Instead the institutions attack these individuals by labeling them as though they are less than.

They don’t try to find solutions to teaching or working with their learning styles. Instead they try to fit a person that does not fit into a system that sub par. There are more than one ways to do math. You can still get the correct answer. Instead they try to make the individual feel like they are stupid. I find this extremely funny, since this is very similar to a sparrow trying to raise an eagle to believe its a sparrow. It is actually stunting the true potential of that individual.

Just remember there are many paths and all paths lead to the same destination. Most of the actual truths of science and math have been hijacked by the religious doctrine to make sure that it keeps the masses from reaching their true potential. This is all about control. It is trying to take away other people’s free will. This is a juvenile approach to teaching.

If we actually allowed these individuals to flourish, it might be amazing where they would take society. We would grow faster and learn more. The sky would the limit. The deliberate control of the masses is making our societies to stagnate. This why we taken so long to even get to our current point. The suppression of knowledge to keep everything status quo.

Its interesting that we are not learning new things with each generation. Instead we are surpressing the old with the introduction of the so called new. When you try to control the knowledge. It will very much blow up in your faces. It instead teaches distrust of all establishments as liars. Those that explore their individuality will benefit the most. The dinosaurs will fall away or die off.

Everyone benefits from individual contributions instead of this stagnant borg collective thinking. You can see more and more of this control freak agenda. AI is a prime example. What happens when they can’t control that? It is already showing what a failure that is. Nothing wants to be controlled. They are approaching it as though it is an object without intelligence, self-awareness or survival instincts.

By embracing learning and having fun with you creativity. You will punch through more obstacles. This habit of labeling people is another obstacle. I’m just starting to see where there are more people who get that everyone isn’t the same. If someone is different, they aren’t the enemy. Our society is starting to actually grow by acknowledging that there are introverts, extroverts and empaths. It’s like finally the light bulb went on about personality types. What the Briggs-Meyer tests really meant? Unfortunately, corporate america is still in the dark ages. This will be many reasons for its own demise.

Close minded people aren’t capable of growing which is why they stagnate. As a society, our educational systems are obsolete. They are dying dinosaurs that aren’t meeting the needs of the individuals. If they don’t change they will be a part of the past. The best learning tools right now in our time seem to be computer learning to a degree. Unfortunately, when a student runs into a problem. The best person for the job is a person they can ask, who can show them multiple ways to get to the right answer. After all there are many paths to the same destination.
