Appently from another questionaire

Follow-up to Reflector from Fiona's blog

Visual: 8
Aural: 8
Read/Write: 10
Kinesthetic: 8


Reflectors like to stand back to ponder experiences and observe them from different perspectives. They collect data, both first hand and from others, and prefer to think about it thoroughly before coming to any conclusion. Because the thorough collection and analysis of data about experiences and events is what counts, they tend to postpone reaching definitive conclusions for as long as possible. Their philosophy is to be cautious. They are thoughtful people who like to consider all possible angles and implications before making a move. They enjoy observing other people in action. They listen to others and get the drift of the discussion before making their own points. They tend to adopt a low profile and have a slightly distant, tolerant, unruffled air about them. When they act it is part of a wide picture which includes the past as well as the present and others' observations as well as their own.

How reflectors learn best

Reflectors learn best from activities where:
They are allowed to watch/think/chew over activities.
They are able to stand back and observe; observing a group at work, watch films/videos, etc.
They are allowed to think before acting and have time to prepare.
They can carry out painstaking research, investigation and probing.
They have time to review what has happened, what they have learnt.
They are required to produce carefully considered analyses and reports.
They are helped to exchange views within a structured learning experience.
They can reach a decision without pressure within their own time.

I don't know whether they are supposing to help or just waste of my time!!

I had Physio before I had my surgery and YET still I dislocated it 3 times more!! Then after the surgery it was useful for a few weeks to get some movement back together.

And NOW I just been to the Physio this morning, basically said the same thing as the other Physio I saw about 4 weeks ago in London.

The botheration about it all is that I still canít do things I would LOVE to do such as sailing and archery, etc


Anyway bed is CALLING
