From the mind of a mild mannered maniac

What’s your learning style?

Do you prefer learning in a group and in an interactive setting? Or one-on-one? Do you retain information best through lectures, or visuals, or simply by reading?

Good question!

I like being involved in communial projects and am fascinated by group, and one on one, brain storming dynamics. It’s exciting and compelling. Like improvisational comedy skits, you never know what might come out of it.

Besides, It is so hard to get objective feedback and to explore other points of view, when you’re a party of one.

Okay, I know I have had differences of oplnion with myself, and dissed my own ideas on numerous occasions, but erm…well, I’ll save that one for another day! đŸ˜‰


That’s why I struggle to understand why I do my best learning/studying as a solo act. 

I mean, I remember being absolutely engaged in lectures and group study sessions in class. My trusty pen poised eager and ready over a large sheaf of note paper, intent on, capturing the poignant details. 

Heck, I even remember being an active participant, tossing out relevent queries, and responses to whatever topic was at hand. 

Moments after it was over, however, the learned material would vanish. My mind would be a total blank! 

The intent was in full force, but my brain just could not, or would not, access it’s long-term memory, that way. 

That’s okay though, I had my carefully assembled notes to fall back on, right? Well…..not quite. A brief glance at my study notes, would invariably reveal some artistic looking doodles, a dozen incoherent phrases, and chicken scratch.


I wasn’t a horrible student though, in fact I faired quite well, all in all. My secret weapon was an ability to gleen the necessary knowledge from my text books. 

I would find a quiet spot, read up a storm, and my teenage mind would, somehow, retain it.    

     Anyway…                            

 That’s my response, thanks for wading through it. Now share yours, if you like. Leave a comment below, or better yet post it on your blog page.
