 ABOUT MIND STYLES

 OVERVIEW 

Phenomenological researcher and professor, 
Dr Anthony F. Gregorc Ph.D

Postulated, through his research and in numerous books that it can useful to categorize "Mind Styles" in 4 ways, including:

Concrete Sequential 
Concrete Random
Abstract Sequential
Abstract Random

The Art Education faculty at Kendall College of Art and Design agrees with Gregorc that it is useful to understand these Mind Styles when developing curriculum and attempt to engage them with as broad of a brush as possible. KCAD Art Education professor Donna StJohn calls for a plan that includes only the concrete sequential and abstract random. The other two will then likely be covered automatically with this approach.
