As for studying, yes I agree that there are a surprising number of people who regard the TK as just a massive hurdle to overcome and have no interest in actually learning anything This appears to be pretty rife among some of the younger people taking ATPL, in fact the attitude of some I've met at the ground schools, given that they want to be professional airline pilots, is sometimes quite shocking.
Young people now are brought up in an environment where the only reason to study is to get good grades, and the concept of studying to enjoy or master a subject is almost totally lost.
It isn't their fault - it's the fault of people aged 35-70 who created a world and school environment that way. We have let them down badly.
