  • Pain and duress to force a person into obedient study. Examples of this are rapping knuckles with a ruler, spankings and other threats of punishment if a student did not learn as the teacher demanded. Students “taught” in this method often dislike study and have great difficulty with it in future attempts. Pain and duress also stand as a confession from the teacher that he has failed in his job.

    It has never been successful to override a person’s own determinism to “make” them do something. Consulting someone’s understanding and encouraging their sincere willingness and desire to learn has always succeeded. Teaching someone with the idea they are stupid and must be forced to learn destroys the individual’s initiative.

    In Scientology the actual causes for study difficulties have been isolated. L. Ron Hubbard’s study technology can handle reasons why anyone would have trouble in study and even more importantly, once a person is taught the technology of study, he can actually prevent difficulties from occurring again.
