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.
Today’s topic is based on Howard Gardener's theory of Multiple Intelligences, which most are familiar with. So rather than bore you or drive you away by going into them in depth, what I will do is point you in the direction of some checklists for you to use in determining your child’s primary giftedness/intelligence.
