Are you not aware of people who are "tone deaf"? All the training in the world won't get them to recognize tones.

That's really the point. Training can be in the way initially. Formalizing a process for a child or beginner is often the fastest way to destroy their desire to pursue a thing.

And it's a bit crazy of you to think that everyone is like you, although completely understandable, because we want to be tribal and presume that all other humans have all the traits we have.

Without going too political or philosophical: that's the last thing in the world I think or want.
