I studied math in school. No surprise given my content (see here), but I guess it makes sense to come out and say it. Thus it undoubtedly has shaped the way that I see the world and make decisions. Everyone sees the world through a different lens and getting another’s perspective outside of one’s experience and modality is important for growth. When it comes to my perception it usually is useful for me to describe things in terms of mathematical concepts and models. As I’m sure anyone can guess, this can be very frustrating for others who don’t share my passions.
