As we get older, we focus more on specialized knowledge than broader learning. A new paper argues that’s slowing us down.
Well, I may be deluding myself of course, but I feel every bit as sharp as I did 30 years ago. If I needed to learn a new language for example, I’d assume I could just go ahead and do so. How about you?

I’m on board–never been 60 before! But I love growing!
Perhaps mind changes in time, but I don’t think that we basically are no longer able to learn new things. I learnt a new language as an adult and did my studies as a “mature” student (that’s what’s called here someone who goes into higher education not right after high school).
I do believe that keeping one’s mind trained to learn is the key, else it will get “lazy”… my 2c 😉
