I returned to college at age 42 and had a psychology professor tell me I was that way. By age 42, I thought I had a handle on things, but he pointed out that I refused to accept what he was teaching. That I had a "resistance to learning". I came to understand he was correct, and from then on I became "teachable". Nice point you make, I used to be just like that.
I love my Netflix, both streaming and the two at a time plan. I have 130 movies in cue and about 50 in the instant cue. Waiting 28 days is not a problem, take your time movie studios! I no longer buy movies anyway!
