  1. After two years of active military service, it's hard to learn when you return to the third year of medical school at the age of 20.

    After any break in your studies, it is difficult to learn.

    But if the habits associated with studying are developed, it is normal to switch on again. And if there is interest, motivation, of course. But for the sake of a tick, even at the age of 15, learning is sour.

  2. eem.. it's hard to learn if you've never studied.

    I mean, if you did most of school, college insta again, served time, and because of this, you got your C's and got out of there.
    and then I was stuck at work, where I also didn't do anything new, and so I spent 15 years in absolute stagnation.
    Then yes, it will be very difficult to learn. You're starting out for the first time, but you're not as impressionable and enthusiastic as you were when you were young.

    But if you, on the contrary, almost constantly learn something new ( no one talks about diplomas or anything like that, just read articles, follow science at least a little bit, change jobs, positions, hobbies), but you will enjoy it.
    Personally, I'm learning faster now than when I was young.

    I don't need to force myself, I clearly understand what I do and why I do it, and I also understand perfectly well that no one is holding me back.

    and this allows you to actually enjoy every moment and not dream � “my God, if only the day would pass faster and get out of here”

  3. At the age of 50, he graduated from college with a red diploma in industrial automation. I am forced to work as a simple electronic communications fitter on the 4th category, since we do not have production as such. And so I studied before the army and after. He started working at the age of 17.Soon for a “deferred” pension.

  4. Is it true that if you do something, you can get tired? And if you don't do anything, you'll get tired too? If you constantly upgrade a skill, you will eventually upgrade it. The main thing is to keep your attention and interest in the process. And it's easier to manage your attention as you get older (if you don't drink too much and don't watch TV). At the age of 18, people are still hot, but they cool down quickly, and they tend to quit before finishing the job when the result is not as they thought. And after 30, they begin to understand the depth of life, which is not so clear. Therefore, it is easier to learn with age.

  5. Mental activity, like any other, requires skills, habits. A modern person should study almost continuously. You get a basic education at a university, then periodically improve your skills at short-term courses and seminars, and independently study new products in your work profile. Many people get a second higher education, which allows them to change their occupation. Here your opportunities will depend on your basic education. If you have a first degree in physics and mathematics, then everything is fine for you. It will go well only after the technical one, on the contrary, I don't know the cases. Last time I passed the professional retraining by the age of 50, I did not experience any difficulties. Now (after 60) I attend 2-3 day seminars once a year.

  6. Yes, it's true. The plasticity of the brain decreases over time, and it becomes more difficult to process new information. The situation is especially bad when it comes to languages: (1) if you haven't mastered a foreign accent by the age of 12-13, you will never lose your accent, (2) if by the age of 16-18 you haven't mastered the grammatical norms of a foreign language (the”feel” of the language), your chances of speaking it perfectly at least ever are very small. I can provide links to research.

  7. It depends on the individual, on how well they have developed their memory, perception, and general ability to learn.�

    From a personal example , I became much better and easier to assimilate information after 25-27 years. Everything is right in the head where you need it, everything is understood and remembered. I regret that I did not delay my studies, but now I would have chosen a different subject, and I would have studied much better.
