I think there is "some" wiring that makes certain things interesting to certain people. I'm definitely a spatial and deductive thinker that loves 3d modeling. I enjoy it to the point of obtaining data, compiling, and performing volumetric calculations, along with making pretty pictures. I'll leave the point cloud interpolation models to the likes of your mom

Yeah, teachers make a difference. One of my math profs was a part timer at college and full time High School teacher. He received
the microsoft innovative teacher of the year award. He wrote his own curriculum. He was crazy good in his approach, which was to instill real life situations to problem solve along with being highly entertaining. I always thought that his HS students were some of the luckiest kids on the planet and hope they appreciated it.

I was fine with physics through Newton. Spacetime was another matter.
