How to improve each approach?
■ Visually stimulated persons need to work in organized and attractive environments but also need to have a challenging work to do so they don’t lose focus. They also prefer colorful and schematic presentations and would rather work with tables and graphs than long descriptions.
■ Acoustic stimulated persons require very quiet places when they need to focus but in the same time can get clues from the slightest sound changes. They need to work with people and discuss every detail as this is how they get their best ideas and the way they assimilate information.
■ Kinetic stimulated people need to put things in practice and deal with new concepts by trying them out and finding solutions for them. They need a challenging environment because they are quickly bored but they also get distracted easily by any kind of movement. They gesture a lot and need to participate in lively presentations rather than read information.12 Jan, 2015
