Or do you consider the individual, as 'you'?

Do you think about what you can get from people, specifically strangers? Are you focused on independent, goal, or objective solutions?

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
