The term 'activist' describes a learning style where a person learns best when faced with new experiences and can just 'get on with it' rather than have to listen to all the information about it beforehand. They thrive on variety, problem-solving and challenges, and can become bored if they are not doing anything (eg, passively listening in a lecture style workshop). Repetition is not favoured, as the activist likes to try new things. Activist learners enjoy working with others, or in a group - but be aware that they may not have a good head for detail nor cope well with explicit instructions that limit their creativity.
