We all perceive and then process our experiences, along with the information gained from the experiences. The differences in thewe approach these two activities define our learning style.
Perceiving: how we take in information-through experiences, reading, listening, visualizing or other sensory modes
Processing: how we determine the meaning, store and retrieve information-reflecting, watching, jumping in and doing, sitting back and observing
These differences define our learning style. Type One learners are feelers and watchers. Type Two learners are watchers and thinkers. Type Three learners are thinkers and doers. Type Four learners are doers and feelers. Your learning style influences your communication, coaching, leading and training style.
Learning is so much more than classroom instruction. Reading an email, meeting, coaching, communicating are all learning processes. Our preferences impact how we engage and disengage in every situation that involves taking in and processing information.
