Dan could have used his Learning Patters by using the patterns he was trying to avoiding and by enhancing and using the ones he used first. Dan lacks self-esteem and he is a procrastinator. He kept putting things off until he could not put things off any longer. He had the space, but did nit use it wisely. He did all he could to make himself believe that he could not do the assignment. In order for Dan to be an intentional learner he needs to use his Technical Reasoning better so that the paragraphs he writes can be clear, concise and to the point. He can do the work, and use his Use First Sequence Pattern to become more organized with his work. He did the background work, but lost it. He could have easily started over, but chose not to. He could have used Confluence so that his idea could have just flowed easily and because he was organized, he could have crossed things off as he did them.
I could have used my Learning Patterns more effectively on a quiz i took. I did not like my score and instead of studying some more and trying to retake it i didn't. I kept thinking maybe i would do even worse, so i made a conscious decision not to retake the quiz again. I could have read through the chapter again, but i didn't. i could have used the FIT Patterns in this way, for technical reasoning, i could have made sticky notes or high lighted important information, but i just did not want to take that chance. I could have used my Use First Pattern to search for the right answers.
