So here’s the next piece of the puzzle and what I feel is by far the most important part: Learning Styles.
So as we’ve experienced so far, there are a number of axes that you can categorize people’s perceptions as well as reflections, so how do you categorize these people on a limitless number of possibilities? Well, the 4Mat System puts these people into 4 individual classes based on the way they ask for help, and each person favors at least one particular type:
People that learn with their imagination. They feel, watch, seek association, meaning and involvement. The key question that they ask is ‘Why?’.
This is an analytical style of learning. They listen and think about information. They seek facts and problem solve, working through ideas using expert opinions. The key question that they ask is ‘What?’.
These people use their common sense. They think and do; testing, experimenting, creating and build processes. They tweak and tamper to find the optimal way. The key question they ask is ‘How?’.
Learning from reactions. These people do and feel, seeking out the hidden possibilities and exploring. They often approach using trial and error. The key questions they ask is ‘If?’.
So try to categorize yourself. Think about where on the axis you fit. Then look at someone in your workplace that you may or may not get along with. I think if you can categorize them into this pattern, you’ll understand a lot more about them, and I think your relationship will improve dramatically…
