Learning styles: EN: Extraversion and IntuitionES: Extraversion and Sensing

A fun way to have participants group by three and use processing skills


  1. Hand created cards out to each participant.
  2. Without any other direction except, "Find your triad", have participants get up and try grouping by 3.


The words/items/whatever that I used were to stimulate connections with three's. People or ideas that go together.

Huey, Dewey, Louie
Ringo, John, George
Snap, Crackle, Pop
Moe, Larry, Curley
Sand, Surf, Sun
Peter, Paul, Mary
Morning, Noon, Night
Martin, Sinatra, Davis Jr.
Crosby, Stills, Nash
Red, White, Blue
Earth, Wind, Fire
