How Your Personality Determines How You Learn

How Your Personality Determines How You Learn | What's new | Scoop.it

It's virtually impossible to imagine life without learning. We come into the world armed with little more than a bunch of primitive survival instincts, but it’s thanks to our ability to learn that we start adapting to the environment, going from helpless infants into semi-autonomous children before maturing into young adults. Still, when it comes to how we learn, most of us differ considerably at every stage in that process. Now scientists are learning more about that variation and what's behind it.

 

Psychologists have studied learning for over a century, but research in this area has really taken off in the last two decades. Most studies indicate that our personalities largely determine the ways we like to learn. In other words, who we are shapes how we learn. Here's what some of the latest research has uncovered about the most common learning styles and the ways we can learn to our fullest potential.

Get Up. Get Out. Don't Sit.

Get Up. Get Out. Don't Sit. | What's new | Scoop.it

Two new studies make a convincing case that sitting too much will shorten your life.

The research adds to a growing scientific consensus that the more time someone spends sitting, especially in front of the television, the shorter and less robust his or her life may be.

Thankfully, excessive sitting is theoretically easy to combat. First, cut TV time. “The evidence indicates that four hours per day is in the ‘risky’ category,”  “while less than two hours per day is in the lower-risk group.”

Then look to the rest of your day. When group of volunteers were asked recently to reduce their daily sitting time by an hour, “they came up with lots of ideas,”  including “putting the garbage bin on the other side of the office, standing during coffee breaks and telephone calls, having standing meetings, standing on the bus.”

“There is absolutely no doubt that exercise is beneficial for health,”  It just may not, by itself, be sufficient for health. If you exercise for 30 minutes a day, she says, “take time to reflect on your activity levels for the remaining 23.5 hours,” and aim to “be active, sit less.”

Nice little ad from Ikea | What's new | Scoop.it
Is print really dying? Not according to Ikea, which has good reason to still believe in dead trees. After all, the company prints around 200 million copies of its catalog every year in 27 languages for 38 countries. That's more than twice the number of bibles produced in a given year. But is a print catalog too low-fi for the high-tech age?

Brilliant work from BBH and Ikea. Flipping the eBook and e-catalog on it's head by releasing a clever and wonderfully crafted campaign for their 2015 product catalog.  Releasing only abroad (for now), the campaign will be mixed-media and run on newspaper, outdoor, radio, cinema, and a microsite. I'd be curious to see a printed version of this campaign!
