I received the following comment on my last post, 3 Types of Learners, and I thought I’d base my next post on it. Enjoy!
“This blog was AWESOME. Having read Delivering Happiness, I definitely agree that Tony is a submerged learner. One thing that came up while I was reading the blog, however, was the fact that I probably took on each type of learner depending upon the class/subject/etc. For example, when I was in philosophy during college, I was definitely a submerged learner (and am now that way when it comes to business).
