 Turning Information into Knowledge
Understanding the ability to turn information into knowledge is extremely complex. Thecharts that follow may help you understand why some people comprehend information easywhile others find it almost impossible. With a visual picture it becomes clear the connectionbetween learning environments and natural talent. Discovering your natural talent is essential toselecting a professional skill. Employers are looking for employees, whose natural talent is inharmony with the assigned tasks. These charts can help students and employers understand thelink between natural talents and needed skills.
Learning Personality
Every individual not only has a social personality that is different from everyone else,each of us has a learning personality that is different from everyone else. Our learningpersonality is the combination of natural talent, personal interest, current opportunity, socialenvironment, character, motivation and how the brain processes information.People, whose learning personality is in harmony with their social environment areconsidered highly intelligent. People, whose learning personality is out of harmony with theirsocial environment are considered to have low intelligence. Everyone wants to be consideredintelligent and will seek social environments that will give them that feeling. This is why somestrive to be a
while others accept a self-destructive (criminal) lifestyle.This document uses the term “Learning Personality.” The
Motivation Tool Chest
website has extensive articles on the topic.
Information Sources
Universal intelligence is the source of all creative thinking, which is the result of seekinganswers to a need. Universal intelligence can be compared to a mainframe computer that sendsout information to desktop computers as needed. A desktop cannot hold the volume of information a mainframe can, but it does not need to, because it’s not possible for a single user touse it. Super achievers have learned how to tap into various sources of information. They have alove-to-learn that motivates them to seek change. For others, their source of information islimited to what is already discovered and recorded. They reject change and accept the way thingsare, they no longer have a desire to learn.
Using this Chart
The formal education is designed by intellectuals for intellectuals. This chart is designedto help non-intellectuals — people who are in conflict with the formal education system. Inaddition, it will help employers select efficient employees, specially blue-collar skills. The chartcompares academic and mechanical learning personalities, because they are opposite. As a rule,people who have strong natural talent in one are weak in the other. The artistic personalityrepresents other talents. Very often artistic talented people have limited ability in academic andmechanical skills, so they would have the same academic education problems that mechanicaltalented people have.
