The objective is clear and it’s a rewarding process
For me it started when I took Calculus, I think that the joy of finally getting to a solution you’ve worked so hard for us enough.
I find I only enjoy doing discrete probability.
It’s got that puzzle quality to do it, figuring out how different sets overlap.
While not requiring anything particularly brain bending, because when you boil it all down it’s just counting.
But I don’t do calculus for fun.
i can’t describe it. It’s kind of like scratching an itch, and when I do some math I feel like I’m satisfying something deep inside.
There is a right/exact answer most of the time ~ there’s nothing to argue about, nothing to disagree with, it’s just the numbers.
