<blockquote>The problem is, most of the time that I get stuck, I get stuck on something incredibly stupid. I’ve either misread something somewhere or misremembered a concept from earlier in the book. Usually, someone looking over my shoulder could correct me in ten seconds with three words.<br><br>“Dude. Disjunction. ''Dis''junction.”<br><br>These are the things that eat my days.</blockquote>
Some related phenomena (these problems also arise from the static/non-interactive nature of learning material):
* the thing where course instructors reuse old exam/homework problems it's hard to come up with new problems(this problem also arises from the static/non-interactive nature of learning material)* the problem with storing static example problems in [[spaced repetition software]], because the user will just memorize the answer instead of treating it like a new problem(this problem also arises from the static/non-interactive nature of learning material)* inferential distance/lack of uniform background of learners (this problem also arises from the difficulty of anticipating the identity of the learner or how they will react); see e.g. "“There are 10 pre-requisites for understanding concept X. Most people have 6 or seven, and then I write a blog post for each of the 10. Most people, most of the time, feel like they’re reading a thing they already know, yet I did have to write all 10 to be able to get everyone to take the step forward together.”"<ref>https://www.greaterwrong.com/posts/Q924oPJzK92FifuFg/write-a-thousand-roads-to-rome/comment/zCSb8aGbfuLeKKwBP</ref>
