The activities they prefer

How they learn new skills and concepts

When it comes to learning new skills, Pieter Otto will progress faster through a practical approach. They find it hard to assimilate information without seeing it applied practically first. They will do best if they are taught how to do something new or complex before they tackle it by themselves.

Before incorporating new information, Pieter Otto tries to validate its quality. They prefer to rely on subject-matter experts, or well-proven strategies. In general, they avoid taking solo initiatives or trying out new methods without guarantee of their suitability.
