I know this isn't exactly a human trait peculiar to me and me alone, but I have a hell of a time concentrating on things that are difficult to grasp. Put me in front of a Rubik's Cube tutorial and my mind goes blank. Five steps into some calculus equation and all concept of time goes out the window and not only can I not focus, I probably couldn't even express what focus means at that point in time.
So it's no surprise that solving puzzles isn't my forte.
Puzzle games, solving complex riddles, anything that really requires critical thinking doesn't gel well with my brain. Sure, I could make myself smarter, but let's be honest...I'm not going to. I still need to finish watching The Young Pope.
