This is my new word. Which I just made up. So … you’re welcome! My father was an autodidact - and I think I inherited a little of this through his DNA. An autodidact is someone who ‘self educates’. Of course, my timing is great - living here and now - it is easier to ‘self educate’ than at any other time in history. So many resources … and that, in itself provides us with certain challenges. We need to become adept at sifting the authentic from the bullshittery (another new word).
But, learning how to learn is something that we all need to embrace. A little autodidactism will improve your life. We all have a kernel of this ability within us. You taught yourself to walk and talk, after all.
