    Actually, he was pretty sly about it. He left interesting books lying around. One of the first things that I remember catching my attention other than the world news was the Bolshevik revolution and that whole myth about Anastasia. After that I read a historical fiction book about the sinking of Titanic, and I was hooked. I was about seven or eight at the time.

    I think the most important thing is to make history come alive for people. I think the History channel and historical period films are one of the best things to ever happen, and some people don't even like that.
    You have to realise that I'm even more N than most ENFP's. I am an extremely conceptual kind of guy. I am still interested in ideologies, religious wars etc. that have occurred. I am confident that there's a context in which I would find it interesting. My high school history teacher did none of that.

    Clings to me as a sick fixture
    My throbbing heart it gnawed apart
    It stalks and hunts me through mirrors

    Damn, I loved dates. I did think they were useless, however memorizing came easily, so I still liked them.

    Well I was fortunate to have it surrounding me at home. I was very fortunate to have my grandfather. He also taught me how to read before I started kindergarten. And he pushed me toward Grimm's fairy tales, the original ones without lots of pictures, in an attempt to make my reading more sophisticated than "See Jane run."

    I guess I was defending the fact that SJs *can* be good teachers, in their way. They can get you started and point you in the right direction. Then you take off from there.

    It gets harder in high school, though. I will definitely say my favorite high school teacher (junior and senior AP English) was an N. She was incredible.

    That would actually be interesting if the subject was taught right. If ZDF documentaries are any clue however, I think I'll pass. Here we often spend like a week on the topic, watch Schindler's List or some Anne Frank movie, and then move on.

    Why is memorizing dates so difficult? Just set them to a jingle:

    In fourteen hundred and ninety-two, Columbus sailed the ocean blue.

    See? Easy.

    I just HATE stuff like that.... having courses that just require you to learn stuff and then spit it back out for the exam... I hate it and it really does seperate the organized from the disorganised...and more than that it commits the ultimate crime of being utterly devoid of thinking skills creativity and BORING! Man... my sympathies Prpl

    Lol I kind of hate them still. I'm 33, mind you, so the Hell of learning history numbers isn't as a vidid memory in my mind as it used to be.
