• Identify preference for one of four learning styles

• Create a plan for developing less preferred styles
What’s My Learning Style? and the other titles in the HRDQ Style Series are based on the well-known research and personality theories of psychologists Carl Jung, William Moulton Marston, and others. Most research has identified two basic dimensions of style, which we refer to as assertiveness and expressiveness. Assertiveness is the effort a person makes to influence or control the thoughts or actions of others. Expressiveness is the effort that a person makes to control his or her emotions and feelings when relating to others.
How It Works
Participants respond to 20 pairs of adjectives, using a pressure-sensitive form. After scoring is complete, easy-to-read charts allow respondents to quickly scan the strengths and trouble spots that characterise their particular learning styles.
The Facilitator Guide features optional activities that allow participants to work together to learn more about style, recognise individual strengths, and identify areas for improvement. In addition, each Participant Guide provides a personal action-planning worksheet so that individuals can apply what they’ve learned to the workplace and their personal lives.
