Careful Learner

A careful learner is driven by physiological patterns or ingrained habit nearly impossible to break, but is not a true disability. Careful learners go slow, are meticulous, precise, take painstaking and accurate assessments, and very cautious. Typically they must analyze all the permutations of a subject and/or before they even take a first step. Anything must be practiced and tested before used in real world circumstances.
