>>7846871 assuming you take 4 classes and a lab, that gives you about 10 hours a day to do stuff, a little more if you sleep.
there's no way you study in 3-4 hour sessions for all of your subjects every day
since you're clearly procrastinating, why don't you relax, and do an hour a day per subject per week. this doesn't count time for homework or projects, this is just studying. i guarantee you'll get more out of your studies than just cramming every other day
>>7846853 "Not being able to do like an average STEM student" is not the same as "being fine". Anyway, you should force yourself to focus for long hours if you want success. It's like a muscle, if you are not forcing its limits, it won't grow.
OP here. I'm actually a guy with tonnes of free time. What I was getting at was: should I train myself to be an autistic machine who works on one thing for 8 hours in a row, or should I work on 3 or 4 things for 1.5 - 4 hours each?
The second seems more viable but the first has some sort of allure to it.
I'm going to go off on a branch here, your problem isn't concentration and that's where so many people get confused.
You're able to perceive problems and grasp concepts well, but still struggle to get work done, correct?
Your concentration is fine, your issue is Input vs Output regulation.
Good example is the 'INTP' problem; Not being able to perceive when input becomes detrimental to output.
My advice for you if you're struggling to get something done, stop approaching it from the angle of 'understanding' the problem and focus on only 'solving' the problem.
Of course you need to understand something (to varying degrees) in order to solve it, but it's the angle of attack that matters.
The question you should always be asking yourself, is what I'm doing helping me solve problem-X?
I'd recommend making your own flow chart.
If your initial goal is understanding something rather than solving, you keep trying to 'understand' the problem when you're already learnt enough to 'solve' it, but because you don't feel you understand it enough, you forget about the end product and you go in circles.
At my pharmacy school, all of us study a good amount everyday (5 hours minimum and upwards of 8+ the day before the test), but even the smartest ones in my class fuck around on their phone or something every 1hr-2hrs.
There have been studies where people can only focus 100% for like 30 minutes, but I think you can probably extend that to like 1-2hrs tops.
