  • Kathy Jordan thinks this is interesting:


Our approach to learning is very much dependent on what works for us, because every person is unique. Some people may self limit their potential to learn new things because they feel they lack intelligence. From my experience, academic qualifications have very little bearing on people’s ability to learn and sometimes they are weighted far too heavily in the selection process for job roles.

Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.

Albert Einstein



Cultivating a learning mindset includes knowing how you learn best. Each person is intelligent in his or her own way, and each person absorbs information in different ways. Knowing your strongest areas of intelligence and your preferred learning styles will help you identify what approaches to learning will be most effective for you.
