, with their ability to pull together disparate ideas can perform the role of product development.
Like the assimilators
, convergers are precise and logical, abstract and systematic in their thinking, and tend to focus on more thoughtful understanding.

The common types of slime-forming, aerobic (free oxygen assimilator
bacteria) are generally responsible for bacterial incrustation problems in wells.
One theory distinguishes types of learning styles determined by one's strengths in four modes of learning: concrete experience (from feeling), reflective observation (by watching and listening), abstract conceptualization (by thinking), or active experimentation (by doing). Based on these learning categories, a person is identified as being one of four learning-style types: accommodator, diverger, assimilator
, or converger.
Kolb (1984) classified learning styles into Diverger, Assimilator
, Converger, and Accommodator.
Clab learning theory is based on the experimental learning theory including four convergent, divergent, assimilator
and accommodator aspects.
Students who fell into the Converger and Assimilator
learning styles, felt more comfortable taking distance learning courses.

The third type is the ASSIMILATOR
, with dominant learning abilities of Abstract Conceptualization (AC) and Reflective Observation (RO).
The book is a "culture-general assimilator
" in that the incidents describe a wide variety of cultural situations and reflect 18 themes that evolved from their research (i.e., anxiety, time and space, ambiguity, prejudice and ethnocentrism, etc.).
Four prevalent learning styles are summarized (i.e., the converger, assimilator
, diverger, and accommodator), and seven principles for good practice in education are listed.
But at base he was an amateur, a rapid assimilator
, talented but with limited experience and almost no conventional academic training.
Twelve participating students from a Midwest regional university were selected through a screening process using Kolb's Learning Style Inventory (Kolb, 1976) where three students were selected extreme cases in each of the four learning styles identified by Kolb (converger, accomodator, diverger, and assimilator
