> The learning curve is very flat

So if the graph's x axis is time and y axis is the amount of stuff you learn, then a flat learning curve means that you gain very little added knowledge as time goes by. And a steep learning curve means that you learn a lot in a small amount of time.

It always confused me why is it backwards.
