Do you self-educate yourself?

Do you ever take it upon yourself to learn, study, research a topic? Or are you satisfied with the amount of knowledge you have now?

I didn't know what category to put this in :-)

  • I consider myself to be an avid learner, and if I ever stop seeking after knowledge and wisdom, I might as well be dead....

  • Research and read up and study loads of stuff daily. Even if I think I know, I continue.

  • Most definitely.

    I can't imagine my life without the desire to gain knowledge. I honestly can't.. How some people live for gaining wealth. I live for gaining knowledge and understanding. Knowledge brings understanding, understanding brings acceptance, acceptance & understanding directly relate to my ability to live/function in this crazy ever changing world of ours.

  • Sorry, I had to LOL at the "self-educate yourself" part. I can't self-educate someone else, right? :)
    But I'm not preachy, I just found it funny!
    I do self-educate all the time. Especially in this topic because I'm involved in a religious debate group and sometimes I have to actually research and learn in order to reply to a post. It's been amazing, actually, because I always find that my religion has a perfect explanation of everything .If anything, all the research and study has strengthen my faith, not diminished it.

  • All the time... If a topic intrigues me I will research and ask questions ...
    I have my 9 yr old doing the same thing now... if something has his interest
    I will tell him to hop on line and research it...

    I say this a lot...

  • If I happen to come across something that interests me, I will research it until I get a decent understand and then research some more. My current thing is herbal and natural meds/cures.

    Sabrina ... I love that! Knowledge is like air ... can't live without more! I may be stealing that ... if you don't mind. =)

  • I do it all the time, it's a sickness lol. When I found out I was having a boy and needed to decide on a circ or not to circ, I googled almost daily to find stuff... And that's how I became an intactavist.
