  1. I don't like the word “self-development”.
    �there is nothing wrong with it, but it is not specific.

    When I had a desire to understand electrical engineering a year ago , I did not rush to read books all in a row, although I could.
    I went, signed up for a course, and followed it.
    A modest two weeks ,скром a modest 3 lecture hours.
    But – there was a fully developed course, a lot of literature already selected by a person (who, by the way, freely gave it) who understands this, plus a crowd of people who are somehow connected with it, and a lot could be learned even by communicating with them.
    And after all this, I could safely take the book or industry that I needed and study it.

    I apologize for this introduction, but it explains everything.
    It is difficult to develop yourself somewhere out there until you have set yourself a specific goal.
    You can, of course, grab everything in a row.
    Our shelves are full of books on self-development.
    but often there a person is already explained everything that he already knows)

  2. Journalism is best for self-development. Fiction has its advantages. It is fascinating, thanks to the presence of a plot. However, it also has a drawback. The density of useful information is too low. If you remove from a work of art all the water that is needed in it only for beauty, then out of 300-400 pages, at best, a few will remain… no more than ten. All the thoughts that the author wanted to convey with the help of his work to readers can easily be placed on these few pages. And everything else is like packaging.

    Nonfiction is the other extreme. It has too high an information density. It is very difficult to read. But journalism is the most important thing. It contains quite a lot of useful information, which is only slightly embellished with humor and life stories.

  3. Self-development is a complex aspect of every person's life. If you decide to start with literature – I am ready to congratulate you, this is definitely the right choice. And, in the rights of the old and grumpy, I advise you to start with fiction. I'll even recommend a book – Daniel Keyes, ” The Fifth Sally.” Now I will argue my position.

    When reading a book, the reader tries to somehow associate himself with the main character or another character he likes. This is quite normal, even useful. Most often, the reader, under the impression of the charisma and/or character of the hero, begins to think about solutions to everyday situations from the position of a literary character, a la ” What would he/she do in this situation?”.�

    It is fiction that has a significant impact on the reader's personality, even if it makes them think about what they try not to think about. Fiction teaches, first of all, an understanding of oneself. And if a person understands himself , then he will not have any problems understanding others.
