Is it fine to be only theory ?

    Is it fine to be "only theory"?

    I have noticed that I love studying theory but I am not that good applying it. For example: - I have been studying about circuits and stuff and I understand it very well but when doing actual experiments I am not that good in doing it.

    I actually enjoy studying theory more than trying it. I feel content studying about theory.
    Is this approach fine? I've never been good when I do any experiment but good studying its theory! Why is this and should I do something about it?

    What are the problems you have with actual experiments?

    Not really much - but I usually perform slower than others. Its that I enjoy theory much more than actually seeing it in action.

    Being more interested in theory than experimentation (and vice versa) is common and certainly nothing to worry about.
