The ideal culture for them

Ishbel Allotey thrives in cultures geared towards relationships and a collective spirit, where human aspects are prioritised, and everyone feels like they belong. This means environments where rules are adapted to ensure everyone's needs are accounted for.

How they learn new skills and concepts

To learn new concepts, Ishbel Allotey needs concrete evidence. She develops skills gradually, by accumulating practical experience. Theoretical and abstract concepts are often foreign to her, and contribute little to her progress because she will have a hard time applying them in the context of her job. She masters new skills through practice and repetition.

Ishbel Allotey's spontaneous nature leads her to learn by testing out concepts and techniques herself. She finds that the best way to acquire new knowledge is to first try, develop her understanding through failure, and then try again. She can sometimes lack patience. To assimilate new ideas or new knowledge, she first needs to experiment by herself.
