Not a study so much as experience. You cannot *create* inherent interest in any particular subject, which is inevitably joined with ability. You can only discover it. But that discovery is often hindered by obstacles, such as stereotypes, anxiety, lack of confidence or life?s many distractions, and pushing, goading and encouragement are required in various degrees to overcome those obstacles. It is only after the student has given it an honest try to the best of their ability can they ascertain their inherent interest.

You already signed up. You raised a daughter and you probably now have a degree.:)
