Kolb and games

Kolb wrote about learning styles, and the following graph relates very close to gaming to, in learning it is a circle from: feeling -> watching -> thinking -> doing…. for learning everyone can have his or her personal preference to start of with, and will follow the next steps.

In game it is very similar, you act, feel/realise a consequence, a win or some danger, watch, think (process) and act again…
Another of Kolb’s circle of learning is: Perceive -> Analyse ->  Judge – > Experiment ->…
Again very recognisable for how we learn while playing games, or how we play many games….
Bartle’s player types also relate to these learning cycle/types of Kolb as I tried to visualise in the illustration below:
