Sometimes we take a class in order to learn something, but learning is something that happens inside of our own heads—and we learn things on our own all the time. Autodidacts are people who not only know they learn things on their own, but they embrace that. They would rather learn on their own than take classes.

- Visit a museum or gallery.
- Read the Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution.
