I'm good at math. I hate it because it bores me, but I'm good at it. I just don't do it unless I have to. It's boring because it's all there in black and white. You do a, it produces c. Boring. Booooooooorrrrrrrrrinnnnnnnngggggggg.
I like things where there's plenty of room for argument and speculation. Sure, it means this. But it could also mean this, this and this. There's an infinite number of avenues one could tread down when talking of philosophy, morals, ethics, theology or metaphysics. It's fabulous. I can talk about it for hours if I've got a good partner. I love 'what ifs'.
But on a more tangible level I love to read about the same stuff. It's fascinating to try and understand how other people understand the tangible world through their own limited comprehension and experience and to adapt that to my limited comprehension and experience. I like history because history is never boring. Even though it's all already happened and is therefore somewhat set in stone there's still the understanding of the cause and effect of everything to think about.
I'm finding that that's not typical. At least not for the people that I know IRL. They find it bizarre that I read books on theology or history or any of that for fun. They're always asking what class the book is for and give me a confused look when I tell them it's not for any class. It's just for me.
