From what I have seen over many decades, it is surprising how many people don't seek intellectual challenges some because they tell me that they feel they are stupid (and they call themselves that, where they got that from I don't know) and so they don't even try to venture forth to learn. I know one person failed at learning physics (difficult for anyone) and this person now labels himself as stupid.
Others I met are unadventurous when it comes to travel or changing their lives in any way. They tell me that they have no desire the travel or change their lives. One person tells me they had one bad experience travelling when they were a child and that was that, no more travel...ever.
To each their own and their self-limiting excuses obviously serve them for their own personal reasons.
