It Feels Like Brain Damage & PTSD: Learning Languages is Over-Rated.



Learning a bunch of languages won’t make you into an intellectual, it won’t even make you a well-informed, well-read person… on the contrary, it can really prevent your intellectual development (and deprive you of the time to read anything substantive/meaningful) because you’re engaged in rote memorization, and repetition of the simplest elements of (several) foreign systems of thinking. This was an in-depth interview (Q&A) performed live on Twitch over on Truth Crab’s channel. Here’s the link to TruthCrab: https://www.twitch.tv/truthcrab
