BAHAHAHA! THIS IS GREAT! So accurate in so many ways.
I do relate to the students in some ways though.
I need to know how something works, before I accept the information as accurate. Although most things can be figured out by using logic. If someone says just jump off a bridge, I need to understand why. I then compare that with the current knowledge I have and confirm whether or not that is the right decision. I guess in other words, by brain works based on formals. I need to have the full equation and the answer to accept it as factual information
As you know, my replied usually include the solution to a problem, and why the solution is the right one. Adding the reason for the solution triggers so many more questions though.
