    In The Open Mind Dawna Markova says “Of necessity we must learn to facilitate the process of learning Rather than merely accumulating new theories and information that will be outmoded in a few years our focus must shift to learning how to learn” Thinking style is often confused with personality or presented in narrow terms and hence limits our ability to communicate and act The fact is you are not a static label You cannot label thinking for it is not a noun but a dynamic process Dawna helps us to recognize how we think so that we can truly use our gift—and appreciate how differently others use theirs’ The concept is fairly simple All people use a linear thought process during which time a specific brain wave is exhibited The beta wave is exhibited when one is concentrating the alpha wave when sorting and the theta wave when generating new ideas The differences occur however in the way people access these states visually V auditorily A or kinesthetically K There are six possible combinations Although she urges us not to label ourselves for the sake of example I am a VKA When I approach a new problem or need to concentrate I need to see it Then I go through the weeding process to sort through what I can use or not and I do this with my kinesthetic sense—I need to move after learning something new And lastly when I have integrated the new information I can talk about what I have learned or access it when I hear music I encounter conflicts with people who do not access the same states in the same way as I do How could they think that way or move so little or talk so much? Their behavior often appears as ignorant or insulting because what is such a sacred experience to me is so casual for them However realizing this about me I can then appreciate that they must have the converse experience I really like Dawna; she expresses an infectious love for life—so much so that I feel like I can call her by her first name She incorporates her thirty years teaching private psychotherapy practice and doctorate degree that give credence to the scientific data as well as stories of key people in her studies and life that have inspired her These personal anecdotes bring further depth and clarity to the content And she combines these inspiring stories with poetic metaphor that creates just enough space around the story to open your mind to your own perception The Open Mind truly is a mind opening experience I was reading this book to determine how I could better teach my home schooled daughter In my eagerness to get through the stack of good books that I was reading at the time I just read through the book and didn’t do the practical exercises To be perfectly honest I got to the end of the book and realized that I couldn’t determine just from reading it what thinking pattern I used I was in the ballpark but even with the wonderful charts I was confused This was no help to me—or my daughter So I went back through and did the exercises I was pleasantly surprised; they were great They were so varied as to speak to all six of the learning styles I came away being able to not only identify my own thinking pattern but able to easily determine those of my whole family This is a great book for people who yearn to improve their communication and relationships reconnect to their thinking and passions and find organization in their thinking and lives It is such a straight forward and simple concept that you can easily continue on your own You do not suddenly become exempt from learning in adulthood or once you have a degree or become a parent or teacher Learning is a lifelong process

    As a psychology student I was introduced to this book in the early 2000's in school and this book has been sitting on my self so I don't know if it is still relevant today Even if it is not it is still an interesting aspect of learning in psychology Very well written with numerous examples of how to identify and use dominant patterns of perception Can help with learning or why it seems hard to communicate with people with different perceptual patterns from yourself Most people don't realize that other people don't perceive the world how they do Our brains work in various patterns according to Dawna Markova's Visual Kinesthetic and Auditory perception channels of our brainwave patterns I was confused at first because I fit than one pattern but realized that this book may not apply to people's who's brains are affected by mental illness or disabilities I lost my dominant visual perception I had as a young adult when anti depressants took away my creative visualization and left me learning to use my auditory channels dominantly than my visual conscious mind of an artist When you find your dominant pattern than you can learn what your weakness's are and learn to communicate better with others around you by learning their patterns too

    This is an excellent book to help understand why some people think so differently from ourselves and a select few seem to process very similarly We all have three levels of brain waves and on each one we are either audio kinesthetic or visual Since everyone has each of these choices there are six possible combinations and the order that this combination is in shapes your perception of the world If you are audio on the conscious level then music and sound will keep you awake if it is your unconscious level it will put you to sleep People with kinesthetic as their conscious level tend to be athletes and comfortable in their bodies while kinesthetics at the unconscious tend to be rather awkward Depending on your order it can make you seek eye contact when talking and think other people who don't maintain it during conversations are disrespectful or it can make you uncomfortable to the point of feeling people are staring at your soul if you look them in the eye during an intense conversation Reading this book and figuring out your own processing style can help you figure out how to teach yourself new things effectively and how to interact with others better This should also give you some insight into why you get along so well with some people and not with others as well as suggestions to tweak your behavior to get along with people who do not naturally align with your learningprocessing style Regardless of whether you plan on making any of these changes it is a book well worth reading just to be aware of the differences between people and how they perceive the world

    In a thought provoking manner Dr Markova describes three intelligences grounded in our senses visual auditory and kinesthetic She then goes on to suggest we use these intelligences in an increasing order of consciousness starting with the unconscious then the subconscious and finally the conscious Each level depends on a different type of intelligence For example a KVA learner can be described as using kinesthetic knowledge on a conscious level visual information on a subconscious level and auditory input on an unconscious level It follows there are five other combinations KAV kinesthetic auditory visual VKA visual kinesthetic auditory and so on Dr Markova goes on to describe both how to identify one’s own combination of intelligences and how best to interact with those whose styles differ from our own

    Book aids understanding of how we all learn differently Each of us learns visually auditorially and kinetically Find out which of these senses you learn consciously subconsciously or unconsciously you may be surprised It can help you in building relationships at work and at home

    understanding how our brain works very interestingI would use as a reference book when I got stymied as to why certain people act the way they do Wasn't all that interested in the exercises but gleaned a lot of useful information from it Really loved the uotes on each page

  7. Wayne Wayne says:

    Explores some fascinating avenues of how the mind may work but too often lapses into a grating pop psychology voice that makes it hard to take seriously
