“You have to learn a new skill. Do you prefer to read about it, watch someone else do it, hear someone describe it, or try it yourself?”
I would prefer to do it myself. It is hard to learn new skills as a ti. “They” don’t want you to. Last year, I was starting to teach myself Gregg shorthand and “they” started messing with my life. They also have turned up the heat when I took a class in floral design, They want us stupid and fat and in front of the TV. They even “limit” how much novel reading I get to do a day. If threatening you isn’t enough they will threaten to hurt people/pets in your life. These psychopaths never have enough but will be consumed in the end as chaff made for the fire.
