I used to be really interested in understanding things. When I was in high school, I worked to understand the algebra problems so I’d end up with the right answer. Didn’t always conclude the way I would have liked, but I still wanted to understand so I could get a good grade.
I would like to understand how my car engine works. That way, when something goes wrong and lights blink on and off on the dashboard or the temperature gauge moves a little too close to the “H” for comfort, I’ll know what to look for when I lift the hood.
