Are you more like an eagle or like a mouse?

Most people will, at first, choose the eagle: king of the sky; proud; symbol of strength and speed; metaphor of power since the time of the Romans. On the other side, mice are recognised for being extremely resistant and adaptive, and can be very cute and friendly.

But what do they have to do with learning? Which one is better? What does it mean to learn like an eagle vs. a mouse? 

They are symbols of two learning styles: global and analytical. People with a more distinct global learning style will behave more like an eagle does in nature. They will look at concepts and facts from a distance, easily finding connections, rules and associations, filling in the blanks with their intuition.

Sounds good, right? But how about the details? People with a strengthened analytical learning style will focus more on the single aspects of what they are tackling, exploring like a little mouse would do, building a picture of the whole from the ground up.

According to your predominant style, now you might be thinking, “Oh, yes. The global/analytical approach is definitely better. I always study in this manner”. If you have a balanced learning style, on the other side, you might find it difficult to choose the winner. 

Is there really a winning approach? Or does it depend on what you are studying? Or, maybe, on you and your specific learning characteristics?

Both styles have strengths and weaknesses, so the best general strategy (to be modified according to your preferences for maximum effectiveness) is to try mixing the two styles. Ever heard of the Helicopter Technique?

Watch the video to find out more about the two styles and to get some tips that can help you improve your learning method, if you are distinctively global or analytical – and not only.

I started the course with a great deal of doubt, and this is probably one of the greatest things I learned from the course. That doubt was one of the main things holding me back. The course is an amazing eye-opener to the sheer volume of information you can learn and is also a demonstration to how easy it is for you and everyone else, by what you learn to do over the first weekend. After the course my reading speed increased by 4 times, I am now able to communicate in Spanish and I am using mind maps to prepare a quite difficult exam. I now know that I can learn a language quickly, increase my reading speed and have valuable techniques for exams and memory, all it takes now is consistency and practice which is really the true challenge.
