Everyone thinks and learns differently. What are some things that can influence how someone learns and thinks? How can these influences interact with creative problem solving? Do you believe that the influences change if they are working in groups versus working individually?
There are many influences on the learning process. For example living in a certain culture influences your learning process. The way you have been treated by the parents and the society is another factor that influences your learning. The way you have been educated is a great influence on learning. A person’s personal experiences also influence learning process.
Creative problem solving is effected by the different ways of learning. For example if a person is educated at an institute where free thinking is promoted, he/she would be good at creative problem solving.
I do think that when you work in a group, you are influenced by it and your learning patterns are also influenced.
