How they learn new skills and concepts

To learn new concepts, Siboniso Mncube needs concrete evidence. They develop skills gradually, by accumulating practical experience. Theoretical and abstract concepts are often foreign to them, and contribute little to their progress because they will have a hard time applying them in the context of their job. They master new skills through practice and repetition.

Siboniso Mncube's spontaneous nature leads them to learn by testing out concepts and techniques themselves. They finds that the best way to acquire new knowledge is to first try, develop their understanding through failure, and then try again. They can sometimes lack patience. To assimilate new ideas or new knowledge, they first need to experiment by themselves.
