You have decided that elemental attunement is more important than arcane knowledge. You can receive a boost to affinity gains in exchange for a slower magic XP gain. This is a permanent effect.
Affinity Gains Boost is a Talent from the Ars Magica 2 mod. It permanently increases the rate which a player gains depth in their Affinities and permanently decreases the amount of experience the player gains in spell casting.
