Explores an area that has long intrigued scientists and educators: the linkages between the side of the body we favor for seeing, hearing, touching, and moving and the way we think, learn, play, and relate to others. Your Dominance Profile is actually a key factor in shaping the way you think and act. Carla Hannaford shows why, and reveals how knowing your Profile will help you, and your children, to l earn in the way that suits you best, and perform at your highest level. The Dominance Factor clearly explains methods for discovering your Profile that are so simple, non-invasive and easy to learn that even a child can do them. This is a book that parents, teachers, and all of us who need to understand what makes ourselves and others tick, will use and enjoy.

Recently, I attended a workshop in New York City where the author, Carla Hannaford accompanied by her muscially talented husband, Mr. Ahti, presented a workshop where this material was one of the topics discussed.
In the workshop also book, Ms. Hannaford talked about how these dominance profiles can help us better understand how teachers and students naturally learn. A comparison was also discussed on how the school system in the US has designed its learning processes to accommodate certain learning styles. This has meant that other people who are of different learning styles--are often labeled unfavorably..the book goes more into detail. The book also explains step by step how to determine your own and others learning dominance profiles, gives descriptions of each, and suggestions on how to help yourself or others during times of stress also how to compensate.
For example, with my profile, when I am stressed, I am limited with hearing, seeing & talking..but I move. So when I am stressed I do not talk and require movement. With learning, I am a kinestetic learner..which means a combination of hearing (lecture), pictures (visuals) and doing (applying through movement) what I am learning. An example of what I learned I can do to improve my learning is to write lists of what I need to do..also sit towards the back of the room where I can move without disturbing the others in the class.
These profiles can also be used in families or between couples to better understand each others' learning and communication styles and how to help the other person during time of stress.
In the workshop, I learned what my natural approach to learning is as well as what happens to that approach when I am under stress. This helped me accept and understand how I learn and what I can do to help myself going forward--both when learning and not under stress as well as functioning when I am stressed. I also worked with a partner in the workshop and by my understanding her profile, I was more patient and compassionate because I understood her needs for learning & communicating.
I would recommend this book especially to those who work in the school systems, educators, parents, healers, sports coaches and those who truly want to understand the people in their lives from a more compassionate perspective- based on their natural learning style.
