How sensory issues affect career paths

Who we become as adults is often based on how we process sensory information, the sensory information that we process easily. If we are very strong visually, you see children that are very strong visually, and you watch as they grow up and they often go into professions like graphic designing and architecture and engineer – professions, where they have to be able to visually see from multiple different angles. You see other children who are very strong auditorily, and they may go into music professions. Or very strong language-wise, and they may go on to become lawyers. So the way we process sensory information, it affects our temperament, it affects who we are as people, as individuals, and it often will affect our career path.
