How he learns new skills and concepts

Pascal Laniel has a considerable aptitude for assimilating new knowledge. He can learn from advice and from information he gathers on his own. Although he can find it helpful, he does not necessarily have to put new skills into practice in order to master them.

Pascal Laniel's spontaneous nature leads him to learn by testing out concepts and techniques himself. He finds that the best way to acquire new knowledge is to first try, develop his understanding through failure, and then try again. He can sometimes lack patience. To assimilate new ideas or new knowledge, he first needs to experiment by himself.
