Concrete Sequential learners have gifts of great organization, attention to detail, a tendency to always complete tasks, high productivity, and reliable dependability. While there are many other factors that make up a person’s learning style, understanding a person’s primary way of taking in and processing information is essential to understanding that individual.
The main thing to learn here is that we each trust our own ways of perceiving. A dominant concrete person relies most on hard evidence. A dominant abstract person trusts their instincts heavily. In many cases, it comes down to process versus final outcome. When we are aware of learning styles and the roles they play, we can better understand ourselves and how to work with others.
Usually, situations aren’t as they appear on the surface. If half or more of students in a classroom aren’t paying attention, it isn’t necessarily that the teacher is lacking in skill. It is also not necessarily that the kids are naughty. There is probably something else going on.
The more a child associates negative emotions with learning, the more his brain will shut down. He will be immersed completely in his emotions which are urging him to avoid the danger he is in. I have seen children who get to this stage in their life check out, and of course, learning does not happen.
