Bloom’s Taxonomy

Summarizing Bloom’s Taxonomy of Academic Achievement:

Knowledge forms the base of the pyramid:

Memorizing verbatim information being able to remember, but not necessarily fully understand the material.

Comprehension is the second level:

Retaining in your own words; paraphrasing, summarizing, translating.

Application is the third level:

Using information to solve problems, transferring abstract or theoretical ideas to practical solutions. Identifying connections and relationships and how they apply.

Analysis is the fourth level:

Identifying components; determining arrangements, logic and semantics.

Synthesis is the fifth level:

Combining information to form a unique product requires creativity and originality.

Evaluation at the top of the pyramid:

Making decisions and supporting views; requires understanding of values.

Ask yourself: How does this apply to me in my work and life? What is my position in Bloom’s hierarchy of values in my journey of self-mastery in my career?

Objective reality is how we compete in the real world with our ideas, skill sets and abilities to create value for our- self and others in the market place.

In our journey to mastery in our life, profession and career requires the ability to master all levels and use our mind to create a unique career and personhood.

Action steps:

1. Create a Vision for yourself.

2. Write a plan of action, prioritize.

3. Live the plan as if you have become your vision.

4. Find mentors

5. Do it now!

“Motion creates the self.” –Nathaniel Branden
