Society has shaped standards to allow the majority to meet but not all of us. What about the rare personalities that struggle to meet said standards? One size simply does not fit all. Daily struggles sprout from conformity kinesthetic learners and introverts face. Can they find a way to fit in?
Kinesthetic learners make up 5 percent of our population but the majority of the general public are visual and auditory learners, making the environment ideal for them but what about the minority? Classrooms are a perfect example of what I am talking about. Classrooms are ideal for auditory and visual learners because teachers show graphs and pictures to describe the material and they give lectures to better our understanding. No person is perfectly kinesthetic but we get frustrated when those methods fail. You see, we learn by touching and doing. We're natural doers. So pictures and lectures do not help us as much as the majority. Like math, kinesthetic learners need to practice by repetition. Repetition is his or her best friend and only known way since methods of theirs are discovered by them only. I'm not implying that we are special but in this case, the majority shouldn't rule out the minority, we should matter too.
Alas, Kinesthetic learners are not the only ones put to disadvantage. This problem of not fitting in with society standards also arise with introverts which make up less than half of the population. Again, no one is perfectly introverted but introverts struggle to blend in with the outgoing, talkative, sociable extraverts, no we do not hate them, they're healthy to hang out with but society revolves around them. Introverts are people who get their energy from comfortable solitude, in other words they function well alone with their own thoughts, they don't like group work, they tend to get things done faster when alone. Classrooms are also modeled to allow discussions and group projects that allow its students to share ideas with each other. Introverts do not mind sharing ideas but they would rather come up with their own ideas rather than brainstorm with others.
Now, imagine both of these traits in one person, which is even more rare. One may ask how they learn or focus. How do they meet society's standards? They experiment. That is the only way they know. I would know. Both of these traits are part of me, everyday is a challenge for those like me. We aren't special but we shouldn't be ignored. Imagine not being able to retain history because you can't do history, unless it's acting it out but that is only the kinesthetic way, being an introvert at the same time means that acting with people make you uncomfortable. There are benefits to having both traits though. It means you can do hands on work faster, of course, in solitude.
