Kinestetics are people of the movement. Or is the concept broader?
For some people, the harmony of the world around usdepends on the colors, for the second - on the sounds, but there is a third category, the most heterogeneous. It is customary to unite it under the name "kinesthetics". This, of course, simplification. Within this group there are also different types of perception. And we'll talk about this in more detail, including a new foreign classification in the discussion.
Genius as a combination of modalities
Kinesthetics are people who perceive the world andinterpreting it in terms of touch, smell, taste, mood, algorithm of movements. Among them, most creative people, although artists and composers from the category under discussion did not belong to a pure kinesthetic type. Leonardo Da Vinci, for example, was a visual-kinesthetic. These two channels of perception dominated him, as a result of which he perfectly perceived the space and saw the shape of objects. Without such a combination of modalities, there would not be the genius of Da Vinci.
Melody for sensations
The audion-kinesthetic Beethoven created music thatnot only beautiful harmoniously, but also evokes pleasant sensory associations. Perhaps mixing the modalities in his mind helped create the "Moonlight Sonata" and other vibrant deep melodies that both audiales and kinesthetics love. This is only one of the interpretations of the genius of Beethoven.
Modern foreign classification
However, at the present time in the West kinestetics- this concept is more narrow. It is believed that only people who are trained and understand the world through movement can be referred to the category under discussion. And people who prefer smell, touch and mood, Western psychologists are called tactile type. Indeed, the difference is quite large. Tactile type - usually quite contemplative people, but not in the visual sense. They are simply not as active as the fans of the movement - classical kinesthetics. This makes the delineation legitimate.
Looking for each other
Why is it necessary to know the modality? People of different types often do not understand each other, from a vantage point there are many misunderstandings. For example, the audial does not look visual in the eyes of a conversation, and the visual audial does not listen carefully enough! Although in general we need different things, and we must help each other. Kinesthetic is the ideal trainer and dance teacher, tactile is the ideal doctor, the audial will analyze the phrases pronounced with the worst diction in the train, and the visual becomes an ideal art critic who "deliciously" describes the new paintings.
Study in its own mode
Also of great importance is the dominantmodality in learning. Vizual need to draw diagrams, audial - to read to itself on a dictophone a material and to listen for any affairs, kinesthetics - mentally to think up any operations with studied data, and here tactile should listen to the sensations from studied that then to reproduce all precisely. The tactile and kinesthetic types most often occur synaesthesia - the interaction of sensations, resulting in a phenomenal memory.
The way of perception that dominates the interlocutor,can be determined by the preferred words. One will say: "Look," another: "Listen", the third: "Do you feel?", And the fourth: "Let's do it". Of course, the word-markers are much larger, they are only basic. But they are sometimes enough.
