Each Perceptual Style prefers a unique combination
of basic learning techniques
Your Perceptual Style Influences Your Approach To Learning
Learning as an adult is a different experience than when you are a child. The primary driver of that difference is due to the fact adult learning is much more self-directed.
As a child, you learn because your parents and teachers say you must, and they rate and track your progress.
As an adult, you are more likely to pursue learning for a particular reason, such as pursuing knowledge and skills related to your work or personal development. And you are more likely to choose subjects that will have an immediate impact on your life or career.
One aspect of learning that does not change over time is your preference for how information is presented to you. There are three general learning methods; Visual, Auditory and Kinesthetic.
Because of your Perceptual Style™, you respond to all three learning methods but prefer a unique combination of those methods to maximize your knowledge and growth.
Your Perceptual Style directly influences your learning perferences and skills.
Do you know what your natural Strengths are?
Your Perceptual Style is the foundation of all your natural strengths, learning included! How you see the world and make it meaningful to you has everything to do with how you learn most effectively.
The decisions you make, the actions you take, and the directions you choose are all influenced by your Perceptual Style because it defines reality for you.
The more you know about your Perceptual Style, the more you can tap into your natural strengths and potential. That’s because there’s an extensive set of skills and behaviors that naturally align with each Perceptual Style.
Perceptual Style Theory™, created by Gary M. Jordan, PhD, and Lynda-Ross Vega, defines six unique Perceptual Styles.
Perceptual Style represents a unique grouping of fundamental aspects of being human that results in a distinctive experience and characteristic behaviors.

We’ve created an introductory sample assessment just for YOU!
The more you know about your Perceptual Style, the more you can tap into your natural strengths and potential. That’s because there’s an extensive but finite set of skills and behaviors that naturally align with each Perceptual Style.
The alignment of skills and behaviors with Perceptual Style exists because people naturally see the things associated with their Perceptual Style. Those things are easy for them to grasp, understand, and use.
Awareness of the other five Perceptual Styles and how they differ from you provides incredible insights about your relationships with family and friends.
The truth is, what you see is real for you but what others see is real for them. We all use the filter of perception to make meaning for ourselves.
All six Perceptual Styles are normal and healthy ways of perceiving the world. None is better than or more accurate in its perception than any other. Each has unique strengths and specific blind spots. All shine in some situations and struggle in others.
Let's take a look at the ways that the different Perceptual Styles deal with Change:
You view change as just another part of life to be experienced.
You believe that there are stable fundamental patterns and that change is just different variations of these basic patterns.
You are comfortable with change and use it to stay interested, stimulated, and involved.
While you enjoy novelty, you are disturbed by anything that challenges or threatens to change the fundamental patterns you know to be true.
You recognize the inevitability of change.
You prefer to approach change incrementally, proceeding through well-defined steps to a well-defined objective.
You know how changing even minor details can have dramatic effects and a significant impact.
While you distrust wholesale or capricious change, you are skilled at introducing change in the least disruptive manner.
you distrust radical change.
You experience change as a significant disruption to harmony and cooperation.
You are aware of the ripple effect of change across the entire environment and its unintended impact on people’s lives.
You believe that any necessary change must be planned out well in advance of implementation, with all the consequences thought through and people prepared gently and sensitively.
You are a champion for change.
You are stimulated by the challenge inherent in finding new ways to do something.
You are quickly bored with repetition and routine as you experience both as being without challenge.
You will alter, rethink, and completely revamp processes that work well simply because you find them stale or stagnant.
You view change as an inevitable alteration necessary to respond to and accommodate new facts.
You do not understand the need for bold sweeping changes and experience them as foolish and unnecessary.
You view change initiated without solid analysis as inefficient, wasteful, and harmful.
You do not accept a proposed change immediately. You need time to consider the relevant pros and cons before deciding to adapt or resist.
You see change as inevitable and desirable.
You believe that new opportunities and advantages only arise when things change.
You believe that resisting change is futile and wastes time that could be better spent shaping the change to your advantage.
You move towards a broadly defined vision of the future and often discount the impact and disruption of change to the people around you.

Documenting YOU has never been easier. The Internet-based Celebrate You! assessment takes 30-40 minutes and if you are interrupted, you can save your answers and continue at a later time.

And best of all, you’ll receive your results and the Celebrate You! action guide within a few minutes after you submit your assessment.
Imagine the personal confidence and self-esteem that will be yours with information like this at your fingertips:
Social Interaction is essential to your life. What's also interesting is that you will thrive in some social situations and surroundings and be miserable in others. Why continue guessing which is which?
Communication is vital. We all want to be understood, yet we experience disconnects with others that get in the way. How you see the world and make it meaningful to you has everything to do with how you express yourself and how you listen. Why not tap into your communication strengths right now to ensure the important connections you want?
Self-motivation spurs you to action for what you want to do and what you need to do. Why waste time with procrastination when you have the natural skills to tame it?
Some conflict in your life is inevitable. Whether the conflicts are minor or severe, you possess natural skills to help you deal effectively with opposition and disagreement. Why suffer through another uncomfortable conflict with someone you care about when you could use your strengths to diffuse and resolve the situation easily?
Change is constant; it's part of your daily life. Your adaptability strengths mean the difference between excessive worry and stress versus dealing with changes on your terms. Isn’t time to bring your strengths related to change out in the open?
Real leadership success happens from the inside out - using your natural strengths to guide and inspire others to great achievement. You are presented with opportunities to lead every day, in all aspects of your life. Why not harness your natural leadership skills and take the stress out of leading?
Persuasion is a critical life skill. Convincing others to agree with your point of view, adopt a particular perspective, or take a course of action you suggest is something you need to do every day – at work, at home, at school, with friends. Why not tap into your natural abilities to persuade with ease and confidence?
You don’t need this critical information about you someday…you need it now!
