(Sorry for the late response.)
wouldn't know how to distinguish between the issue you describe and my situation, which I like to feel is different.

Moritz answered in the ideal fashion, and you were already acting as the ideal student, continuing to research on your own.

My question (was it really two years ago?) was more for the case of the OP who just doesn't want to think about the problem he's trying to solve. You're like the person trying to learn how to fish in order to feed himself, as opposed to the baby bird who just tilts his head back waiting to be fed by Mama. We often provide the pre-masticated food, rather than teaching how to bait the hook.
