quote:Originally posted by DoctorBeaverI used to throw made-up words into my lectures to see if any of the students would actually ask me to explain them. On the vast majority of occasions, no-one did.I didn't do it just to be mean (although I did take a certain pleasure in it!). It was to demonstrate how the image of ourselves we wish to display can often hamper us. The students would rather remain ignorant than admit in front of the others that they didn't understand what I was saying.
