If THINKING IS A SKILL then the DFQs are the drill.
For you to be reading this page you must already be a TISOT and you will be quite familiar with SOTs Daily Feedback Questions (DFQs) where members are invited to post their comment at the end of each lesson. You will have posted many of your own comments and you will have read many of the comments posted by other SOT members. This is one of the techniques that makes SOT training so effective. DFQs enable the member to do practise and repetition over time. This DFQ method is unique to SOT.
Compare that with the traditional European approach to education which has been that thinking has to do with intelligence and that intelligence is a gift; you either have it or you don’t.
“If you have intelligence then we don’t have to worry about you and if you don’t have intelligence then there’s nothing we can do about you”.
So for 500 years nothing much was done about it.
SOT has a different approach. We view thinking and intelligence as separate issues. We view intelligence as potential that can be realised by THINKING AS A SKILL. Like all skills THINKING can be learned and developed through practise, repetition and rehearsal (PRR). If THINKING IS A SKILL then the DFQs are the drill.
An SOT member will need to do 100 DFQs a year to qualify for SISOT membership.
Why do you think a SISOT will need to do 100 DFQs a year?
