Learning Styles Are Part of Self Discovery and Coaching Processes

As a teen parent I have become interested in learning styles that are important for teachers and students both for kids in school today and for the big challenge of learning and self learning for the rest of us.

Learning Styles are Evolution of the Old "Left Brain vs Right Brian" Hypothesis of Learning 2 Decades Ago

Learning styles are still not understood fully but we know much more about it now than we did say 20 or even 10 years ago.

We do know that each individual often will have one dominant way of learning, for example, visual learning as opposed to several other learning styles that are being discussed academic researchers in education related fields.

Today's Learning Style Hypothesis is an Evolutionary Step to "Left Brain Right Brain" Hypothesis of 2 Decades Ago

In the 70’s when I was in graduate school of business. Peter Drucker, a well known business guru spoke about “left brain and right brain” as a frontier of learning style hypothesis in those days.

Left brain people were typically thought of as “analytic minded” such as in math or accounting type professions. Right brain type people were thought of as more “perceptual minded” more prevalent in creative professions such as marketing, authors and music perhaps also perhaps.

But today, we know the simiplicity of the “left brain/right brain” is inaccurate to describe the diversity of learning style of people.

Today's Nature vs Nurture Debate - Climbing on Shoulders of Great Minds--B.F. Skinner and Science of Human Behavior For Example

In fact, the issue of “Nature vs Nurture” debate that shapes all of us humans is still not fully understood as how the interaction of forces of nature government by such factors as genetic inheritance and cultural influences such as family, language and social norms shapes an individual’s motivation and character.

As an example from the past, a “great mind” in science from the past such as B. F. Skinner and his “operand conditioning” still can add value to understanding environmental influences that can shape human behavior.

An On Going Conversations for Mutual Help and Self Help

The purpose of this conversation dear reader is to discuss what we do know and have found useful with the caveat that be careful not to classify yourself or someone in one particular “style of learning” such as “visual learner” or an “audio learner”.

But it is ok to help discover one’s own learning style that may be helpful but to know that other learning styles will likely play a role in one’ learning, including some styles that we may not yet fully understand

For example, the way emotions or feeling can influence learning for some people.

The way social skills and social environment can influence learning in a given culture and environment.

There are some psychological terms like "emotional intelligence" used by some researchers in psychology field in the past. But psychology alone cannot describe the full range of variables that governments learning skills and learning styles.

Motivation is important in learning.

But how motivation and learning styles may interact and reinforce learning styles and learning skills are yet not fully known.

      How does one really learn, or think, or decide what to do in any situation? It depends upon the individual and his environment. Many factors are involved. I think humanity is heading in the right direction for understanding the cognitive process. Progress has been made; we still have a long way to go.
