Johnny goes to the library . . . .

My love of books began with a box of crayons. OH! how the black on white needed emphasis! I find my powers of research challenged as literature moves through the digital age. Graduate school presents new information for my enjoyment and consumption. READ ON!!!!!

learning for the masses, eh messes, ih misses, oh mosses, uh musses, yh mysses

Thank you teacher for coming to my rescue. I was contemplating what I would babble on about for the next 3 months in this log- until TODAY. You affirmed what I was getting to, but thanks for the reinforcement. I am going to assess assessments currently or pastly used, and probably be used in the near and distant future, for ease of the multitutes. As a lay person, I have only to interpret the aforementioned interpretations to my liking- if not a free country, it is at least a free universe, right?

Because you began with a Jungian construct, I will continue with same. As I don’t want to plagiarize, I will paraphrase to the best of my ability? So far I have learned that learning styles instruments include the Jungian instruments, among others. If time permits later this semester, I will digress. 4 Jungian models are:

Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)
Kolb Learning Style Inventory (LSI3)
Keirsey Temperament Sorter II
Gregorc Style Delineator

The Kolb LSI3 is similar to the MBTI, with four scales: converging, accommodating, diverging, and assimilating. It is short (only 12 items) and is self-scored. David Kolb is an expert in experiential learning, and his product line is available at one source in particular, and those products include:

Kolb learning style exercise
Kolb learning style inventory
Kolb learning style inventory online
Kolb learning style floor mat
Kolb learning style reference card
Kolb learning style T-shirt
Kolb personal learning guide
Kolb team learning experience
and MORE!!!!

We should all be so intelligent. I am currently thinking of a launching a magic carpet floor mat, in the learning style of Maharesh Mahesh Yogi, with scenes of the ancient home of the Dalai Lama in the Himalayas. The possibilities for T-shirts boggles the imagination!@#$?

The LSI3 identifies preferred learning styles (no freedom of thought here, kiddies) for problem solving, working in teams, resolving conflict, communicating at work and home, and considering a career. AND, one of the features of the LSI3 is “use of four color reinforces concepts”- that’s what it says at

Well, I for one, am SPENT! Till next time. . . . . . . . . …
