I often think a sentence like, "I want to have a really big brain!". What would that actually look like?

  • Not experiencing fear or worry when encountering new math.
  • Really quick to determine what I'm most curious about.
  • Not having my head hurt when I'm thinking hard, and generally not feeling much "cognitive strain".
  • Be able to fill in the vague and general impressions with the concrete examples that originally created them.
  • Doing a hammers and nails scan when I encounter new ideas.
  • Having a clear, quickly accessible understanding of the "proof chains" of ideas, as well as the "motivation chains".
    • I don't need to know all the proofs or motivations, but I do have a clear sense of what I understand myself, and what I've outsourced.
  • Instead of feeling "generally confused" by things of just "not getting them", I always have concrete, "This doesn't make sense because BLANK" expressions that allow me to move forward.
