Newbie Cycles


A pattern commonly found among people who enter a new pursuit is, upon first introduction, to like everything without regard. Later, after having learned more, they tend to take on a sort of proud pugishness about their "understanding" of a form, disliking people who break the rules, and often writing volumnes to prove it… Eventually, they grow up a little and rise above this; usually this is because they begin to understood the principles behind the rules. Knowing principles allows them to better understand when a rule doesn’t really apply, and they will begin cautiously breaking rules when it suits the bigger interests of what they are working on.
