My manager always teach a specific individual within my department.
I find this unfair and annoying at random times. Am I too sensitive/jealous about this situation? What advice do you have for me? Anyone experience the same situation? Anyone here know what my manager is planning to do? Is it time for me to look for a new job?

That individual gets extra assistance and help without asking. The "individual" I refer to is a coworker that started 8 months before I joined the team. He gets to learn twice as fast due to tips given by the manager.
Whereas, another coworker and I who started on the same day need to figure things out on our own. We do request for assistance sometimes however the conversation with the manager is usually very short, brief, and vague. Whereas, that individual gets extra attention and my manager would sometimes ask how is he doing, etc. My manager also assign more interesting tasks/projects to that individual to make him more well-rounded (as if my manager is trying to promote him to the next level).
I don't have a problem self-learning by reading internal documents. This is what I have been doing for a year or so. But, it's not enough to catch up to that individual's knowledge without actually working on a wide range of tasks.
