I was reading the other day a statistic that I had heard before. That in communication, only 7% of what is communicated actually comes from the words we say, the rest is from the tone, and body dynamics.
Then I thought about academic writing of which I read much and am trying to produce my own, and how it has such a narrow focus not just in terms of topic, but in terms of communication medium/style.
It's why a blog to throw ideas around with others like you to interact with, or teaching classes where I can interact with people, really helps my learning process.
Now if only I could get all the authors of the books I'm reading to have coffee and a conversation at my study....
Anyhow what's your preferred learning style?
