Interview Profile
To complete my interview profile, I chose a 40 year old male and compared and contrasted information from my own personal profile.

Environment and cultural factors also play a big part in the way people learn.

Some basic information that I learned about my interviewee was that he was 40, the youngest of five boys, and grew up in Upstate New York. He likes to camp, fish, watch football, and spend time with his family when he is not working. He is quite outgoing and loves to entertain people. He is also an ad vide guitar player.
