Soooooo... I didn't know where to post this so I figured this is the safest place.
Basically, my knowledge base is much lower than I would want it to be, especially as a masters student. When I go to quiz night every week, I'm usually the one who contributes the least to my team. Granted, these are all geeks I'm hanging with, but yeah, not so good.
I have an extremely limited knowledge on the economy for example, same with politics and history. Life would be much easier if I just weren't interested in those topics at all, but that's not true, as far as conversations go, I think these are some of the most interesting topics you can talk about. I just don't have the wealth of knowledge to draw on and really get into the it. It usually just ends with me BSing my way through, pretending that I understood half the stuff that was going on.
My question for you is this: how should I fix this problem? Reading on wiki seems pretty direction-less. I think it can get boring for an ENFP like me too. I could try some forums, but I think most of them just talk about the contemporary topics and it'll be pretty hard for me to learn the basics in a place like that (unless someone has some good links!). Any ideas?
