Another programming language: The Haskell Programming Language
As with every other programming language, the proponents explain that other programming languages are difficult and hard to use, but this one, yes, this one is different!
And of course it really isn't. If your mind likes working the way this works, then yeah, you will grok it easily, like it, and no doubt become very productive, thus proving (to yourself at least) that yes, all those other languages are clumsy and non-intuitive.
If not, then you won't grok it, won't like it, and certainly won't be productive. Selecting a programming language is much like selecting a mate; sometimes things just click and sometimes they don't.
Here's another language you are really unlikely to use : https://compsoc.dur.ac.uk/whitespace/tutorial.php
