A List of Different Types of Knowledge
There are three Main types of Knoweledge Managment: -
- "Acquired Knowledge". This can be thought of as knowledge accrued from previous experiences, training, learning, even conversations with others.
- "Unique Knowledge". This is knowledge that comes about from spotting connections between pieces of information or seeing something that fits into a previous line of acquired knowledge that makes the knowledge worker view the knowledge in a new way.
- "Creative Knowledge". This is where someone takes their acquired knowledge and unique knowledge bases and uses them, not to think outside the box, but to think inspirationally.
Below are the list of different types of knowldge I can come across!!
- DIRECT KNOWLEDGE - This is firsthand experience with knowledge recieved.
- INDIRECT KNOWLEDGE - This is knowledge aquired by processing information.
- INTUITIVE KNOWLEDGE - This is knowledge stored in the memory of all individuals.
- PROCEDURAL KNOWLEDGE - This is instructiuonal based process to how to something.
- QUESTIONS - This is knowledge in search of knowldge.
- DECISIONS - This is made up of a combination of the procedural knowledge and questions.
- INFORMATION - This is the communication of other knowledge.
- FIXED - This is knowledge that comes from information in books
- DYNAMIC - This is knowledge that is moving and changes with time like the position of the sun.
- TRUE or FALSE - This is a concept of true and false knowledge can act as a preamble to other types of knowledge.
- CONTRADICTION - this is knowledge used to change the state of some other knowledge from True to False or from False to True.
- PREDICTION - This is knowledge of the future developed from processing current knowledge.
- NONSENSE - This is knowledge that results from informationpurposely or inadvertently scrambled so that it confuses the brain.
- NO KNOWLEDGE or THE END - This is the empty-set of knowledge where no knowledge exists.
Explicit knowledge can be recorded as words, numbers, mathematical and scientific formulae and codes. Explicit knowledge can also be articulated and strored in various media's, and can be easily transfered from individual to individuals. A good example that i have come across for explicit knowledge is Wikipedia as it a world wide spread knowldge transfer of informations.
