Enemies of learning.
Charles Feltman's Enemies of Learning (2-page .pdf) is a quick survey of personal factors that make it harder for us to approach the unknown. A few of the “enemies” that George picked out:
- Our inability to admit that we don't know
- The desire for clarity all the time
- Inability to unlearn
- Lack of trust

This is a nifty, short analysis worth considering for anyone that attempts to inspire learning, it might be less appropriate for those that try to teach.
