Cognitive Style and Education.
So! Our public education system cannot accomodate all of the cognitive styles - there are 16 groups. Lots of different combinations. The reason that the public education system cannot accomodate many different cognitive styles is "because the SYSTEM has evolved instead into a “one-size-fits-all” behemoth that has lost sight of the individual." The SYSTEM is the problem and why our kids are graduating high school unable to read. However the kiddies are being taught about being a good worker who doesn't rock the boat, doesn't question, doesn't make any trouble. Obeys.
In Cubed's own words:
"That, of course, is what Islam has done with its children; it has overridden their individuality with the express purpose of creating compliant, don’t-rock-the-boat types who will be good members of the Ummah, doing exactly what their Mullah Masters demand of them. This is easiest to do if you start young, when the brain is still plastic and making the connections that will be there for a lifetime, and also easier among certain types whose cognitive styles tend to prefer the existence of a strong external structure to live by so they don’t have to derive one for themselves."
There are about 5%-10% of Moslem children who will not fit into the mold that they are crammed into from a very early age. They are our hope and we cannot forget them. They have a cognitive style that will not sit easy with what they have been hammered with.
Well - I just knew that we all would want to know our cognitive style - check out this link, take the short quiz and tell me what YOU are!
I am ISFJ - introvert, sensing, feeling, judging. Slight on the ISF, heavy on the J. It appears that I am a 'Protector/Guardian'. Then there were these things over to the side in a box that said, Rational/Idealist/Artisan/Guardian. What that means I have NO idea.
Happy Mothers Day to those of you to whom it applies. God Bless America!
