Learning Style & Career Planning
  • Review your KOLB learning style
    • Diverger
    • Assimilator
    • Converger
    • Accommodator
  • Career Map


  • Best at concrete experience and reflective observation. Their strengths lie in an imaginative ability. They tend to be interested in people and emotional elements. People with this learning style tend to become counselors, organizational development specialists and personnel managers. They have broad cultural interests and tend to specialize in the arts. This style is characterizes individuals from humanities and liberal arts backgrounds.
  • Learning dominated by abstract conceptualization and reflective observation. Their strengths lie in their ability to create theoretical models. They tend to be less interested in people and less concerned with practical applications of knowledge. They are often more concerned with abstract concepts. Assimilators are often found in research and planning departments. This learning style is more characteristic of basic science and mathematics than applied sciences.
  • Dominant learning abilities are abstract conceptualization and active experimentation. The converger's greatest strength is in the practical application of idea. They tend to be relatively unemotional. They prefer to deal with things rather than people. Convergers tend to have narrow technical interests and quite often choose to specialize in the physical sciences.
  • Best at concrete experience and active experimentation, their strengths lie in doing things and involving themselves in new experiences. They are called accommodators because they excel in adapting to specific immediate circumstances. They tend to solve problems intuitively, relying on others for information. Accommodators are often found working in marketing and sales. The accommodator is at ease with people but is sometimes seen as impatient and pushy. This learner's educational background is often in technical or practical fields such as business.
