“You can’t teach an old dog new tricks,” so they say. Profoundly, an article found on the Internet fits well into this proverb, um, see for yourself by replacing the “dogs” with “human(s)” in the following excerpt:*

Dispelling the myth

Like most adages, this one has a following of folks who truly believe that old dogs cannot be taught new things, but this is not the case. Old dogs can learn new tricks.

Dogs are innately good learners. They are naturally inquisitive and are eager to grasp new experiences. In fact, if a dog is awake, he is learning. They constantly observe their environment and respond to what they hear, see, and smell.

Even though young pups may be more actively curious, dogs never stop learning. In fact, adult dogs are often easier to train than their younger canine friends specifically because they are not as active. Older dogs are not as easily distracted as pups and can focus for longer periods of time. This ability to concentrate helps them learn new routines more easily.
