Unless they’re downloading information, Cybertronians actually tend to take MUCH longer to learn things compared to humans, for a number of reasons
1. If a bot usually relies on downloading the information they need, they usually won’t learn the best way to manually learn, the way they learn the easiest, etc.
2. In some areas, a bots processor might not be the most optimized for a certain task.
A bot might be really good at multitasking, an genuinely multitasking, but has trouble with simple calculations
3. A lot of bots get discouraged when they aren’t great at something from the very beginning, may feel like they’re just not made for something when really they’re just in the process of learning.
It’s probably a attitude that spread because of functionism
