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 do best by reading, and then trying it myself. I tend to get forgetful and then stressed out when I listen to someone give directions or watch them…I think it was worse when I was younger and more related to anxiety about forgetting or looking stupid than anything else.
Written directions sit nicely where ever you put them and don’t judge if you have to go back and re-read them, lol.
Now my memory is absolutely atrocious and I definitely need a sheet to refer to when learning a new task.
