Problems she can deal with

Caroline Guieu has a certain facility for understanding new concepts. She progresses on the basis of advice she receives, or information that she discovers. Even though it helps her learning process, she does not necessarily need to practice an activity concretely to know how to do it.

For her, the best way to acquire new knowledge is to try, develop understanding through failure, then start again. She sometimes lacks patience. To integrate new ideas or new knowledge, she first needs to experiment by herself.
