Thanks for writing and sharing. I think you make a number of good points and have a good anecdotal description of “experiental learning”.
How do you prevent learning the wrong/bad things? Or assuming the wrong things as decision principles? What if you hear something but without enough time to process or “internalize", your brain keeps tapping into that “memory bank" simply because you didn’t tag it as an “absolute no” at the point in which you acquired the formation?
