Einstellung effect. (Unlearning)
“Einstellung is the development of a mechanized state of mind. Often called a problem solving set, Einstellung refers to a person’s predisposition to solve a given problem in a specific manner even though better or more appropriate methods of solving the problem exist.The Einstellung effect is the negative effect of previous experience when solving new problems.The most famous example is the Luchins water jar experiment, in which subjects were asked to solve a series of water jar problems. After solving many problems which had the same solution, subjects applied the same solution to later problems even though a simpler solution existed.
Why is it exponentially harder to unlearn something than it is to learn it?
I believe that the answer lies in understanding of the word, ‘learn’. Learn does not simply mean to remember, but to deeply understand through experience, study, trial and error, backwards and forwards. If you have truly learned something, you have done more than basic memorization. Some lessons take longer to learn, and learning is lifelong, you can always add a layer to your level of knowledge, but you can’t take it away. Time helps dull details, mistakes can still be made, but you can’t un-fry an egg, and I cannot look at letters or words without reading them, no matter how hard I may try.
To overcome Einstellung, you need to keep learning new things in your field or even go for new learning in unrelated fields. When the brain gets used to continuous learning, Einstellung is not that big a problem anymore.” –WIKIPEDIA
