The capability of ones individualslearning• Students must be motivated and willing tolearn such a subject as chemistry• Its up to the individual to take charge andlearning the subject anyone has the capabilityof learning anything• Individuals must have goals and mind sets forone to achieve accomplishing learning thesubject of chemistry
