Is educating yourself much more difficult than being educated? Why? Is it just a motivation thing?

I hope that's OK to ask. Anyone who uses this site frequently probably has an interest in learning, and not just reading, about philosophy


For me being here is mainly about educating myself. That motivates the reading, but I don't know what motivates the interest in the first place.

Being educated puts one on a career path. Because of that I imagine being educated would be more difficult. There are expectations to meet. It is not as easy to stop showing up as it is to stop checking this site.
