The Four Learning Styles

The activist, reflector, theorist and pragmatist is the Money and Mumford (1992) learning model, based on Kolb's model, but using more every day language. Rather than separate entities, these learning styles are a continuum that flow together.

Here is a breakdown of the learning styles.


Activists dive into new experiences with an open mind and a willingness to learn. They savor the present moment and allow their immediate surroundings to take hold.


Reflectors step back from experiences to mull them over and consider them from all sides. They gather data, both firsthand and secondhand, and prefer to carefully analyze and ponder it from every possible perspective before forming definitive conclusions.


Theorists excel at analysis and synthesis. They piece together disparate facts and observations into coherent, logical theories. Their philosophy exalts rationality and logic above all else.


Pragmatists love putting ideas, theories, and techniques to the test. They seek out new approaches and eagerly experiment to see what works.
