I hate names and dates in tests...
I have a hard time remembering either of those.
It's like: No, I can't name the theory, but I sure as hell can tell you what it's about. WHY won't you ask me what the theory's about???
No, I can't remember the date when that thing happened, but I can tell you what happened and the meanings behind that. WHY won't you ask me that???
In reality, not every professor or high degree-d graduate remembers names and dates... they LOOK UP the stuff before they answer a person's questions. They STUDY their stuff before going into an interview. They even have little note cards to look at! Doctors don't remember every disease out there, but they have a darn book that matches the symptoms.
So why do they FORCE me to remember all these dates and names?? Let me do it naturally: Take good notes and be able to make quick glimpses at them before you ask me the question! I suck at remembering specific naming and I suck at tests! D:
