How they learn new skills and concepts

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.

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.
