I think; therefore I am

I have always been interested in learning styles and evaluating how people learn. I studied this in depth in college both at the undergraduate and graduate levels and plain just read anything published about it. I like to figure out how people think. That is why this fun little test caught my eye.

What kind of thinker are you? Here I am: (and can you believe it? They even swiped my photo!! I was shocked.) (ha ha)

Your Dominant Thinking Style: Exploring

You thrive on the unknown and unpredictable. Novelty is your middle name.
You are a challenger. You tend to challenge common assumptions and beliefs.

An expert inventor and problem solver, you approach everything from new angles.
You show people how to question their models of the world.

Hey. Here's mine:

"You are very insightful and tend to make decisions based on your insights.
You focus on how things should be - even if you haven't worked out the details.

"An idealist, thinking of the future helps you guide your path.
You tend to give others long-term direction and momentum."

I think that's fairly accurate. Fun test!

I think this sounds like you, LeAnne! Thanks for telling me your results.

It's amazing what little nuggets of truth about ourselves show up in fun things like this. ha!

I'm also a "Visioning"--always knew we were alike, LeAnne. :-)

Ah, Crystal, regarding that "giving long term direction" and "momentum to others"--I think you owe me an update. :-)

Yep, "Visioning" here, too.
that's pretty much me. Crystal, I think your's is a good fit, too!

Here's mine: and I guess it's accurate. I wanted to pick more than one answer to some of the questions!! ;D

Your Dominant Thinking Style: Experimenting

You're all about looking at the facts, and you could always use more of them.
You see life as your lab - and you're always trying out new things, people, and ideas.

The master of mix and match, you're always coming up with unique combinations.
You are good at getting a group to reach consensus.

It must be somewhat true, Carrie, if you are wanting to "experiment" with different answers! LOL. So interesting.

It is cool to see Judy's and Peg's results, too. I think those are true by what I know of you both.

Judy, I have to admit my progress is not only slow, but wondering what I am doing. Report coming later this week....ha

Thanks for playing and telling me your results!
