According to Benjamin Bloom’s Taxonomy of Educational Objectives: The Cognitive Domain, 95% of people have the capacity to learn and acquire knowledge in any field of study. All that needs to be determined is your own personal style of learning. In his book, Bloom states that to reduce variation in the achievement of diverse students, educators must increase variation of instruction.
Some people are heavy on visual learning like charts, graphs, and color. Some people learn best in verbal situations, by listening to lectures, taking notes, and talking it out with others. Others are hands-on learners who gain insight from experience and adventure while someone else may find they work best through deep thought and logical thinking to reach conclusions.
Once you’ve discovered which learning style fits you, you can begin the long haul to being a true expert.
