Section 1
* Intrapersonal
Experiential learning theory was proposed by Kolb (1984) to provide a complete model of
the learning process in humans, kolb (1984) was influence by other famous theorists
including Jean Piaget and John Dewey amongst others. I learnt that this theory include
concrete experience, reflective observation, abstract conceptualisation and active
experimentation. Also using ELT enhancing learning can respect for learners and their
experience, making space for conversational learning, development of expertise, acting and
reflecting, feeling and thinking, and take charge on their own learning. Personality

forgiving, straightforward, warm, compliant, modest, sympathetic, efficient, organised,
dutiful, thorough, self-disciplined, deliberate, relaxed, even tempered, contented, calm, self-
confident, curious, imaginative, artistic, wide interest, excitable and unconventional
characters. In the group presentation, our group was focus on personality testing involving
in companies in the present day, how personality test can help professional companies find

that stereotyping is common in the professional workplace. Stereotype is assigning traits to
people based on their membership in a social category. Later on I also learnt that emotions
show higher rates of recognition, but all show marked cross-cultural generalizability. There
are four aspects of emotions, include biology, intensity, frequency and duration, and
functions. According to (Robbins et al., 2008), emotions and moods can be identify as
positive or negative, which can be discover during weekly basis. Back in the 90’s, (Salovey &
Meyer, 1990), discover that is four types ability (i.e. A form of intelligence), which are
perceiving emotions, using emotions, understanding emotions and managing emotions.
