It is based on emotional learning experiences and feelings about learning.

  4. 4. How do You Feel? Intra-personal/interpersonal skills Intuition Intellect Emotions and feelings
  5. 5. Question 1 Emotions versus feelings  Can you describe the difference between emotion and feelings, and how this has a major impact on the way we learn?
  6. 6. Question 2 Feelings versus intellect  How do we balance our feelings and intellect for ultimate success and enhanced life experience?
  7. 7. Question 3  How can teachers help their students to learn intuitively? Intuition
  8. 8. Question 4 Logic versus Imagination  If a teacher is too intellectual (lacking empathy, rapport =building skills etc.) can this harm the students? For example, focusing mostly on facts as opposed to thinking skills or imagination.
