if you invest effort into something, will it _usually_ mean that you will necessarily get something out of it? (given that if you have no aptitude for it whatsoever you’d eventually get frustrated and realize that you’re not getting anything?)

Not necessarily. you could potentially have no aptitude for it and not realize it for many years. but this depends on fields that tolerate a wide range of responses and those that don’t. i wonder if this applies to mathematics. you could read a huge number of books and spend a lot of time in the subject without understanding anything. but then will you eventually realize it? or will you continue reading, still believing that you have some potential?
