The other day I was browsing the first threads we had about chapter 1 and found something an Anon wrote, it's pretty interesting.
Since the 3 MCs are all super geniuses, but each one of them in their own way, this Anon noticed that they kind of represent the three Domains of learning. It's a bit of a stretch, but I elaborated a bit on it and it can bee seen in another way.
The three domain of learning are:
Basically they represent respectively knowledge, feelings and actions.
Each one of these types of learning has different degrees (example, from recalling a fact, to using logic to solve a problem), in these links you can see a lot of examples that can give you a better understadning of the modelhttp://www.nwlink.com/~donclark/hrd/bloom.htmlhttp://www.nwlink.com/~donclark/hrd/Bloom/affective_domain.htmlhttp://www.nwlink.com/~donclark/hrd/Bloom/psychomotor_domain.html
All the main characters excel particularly in one of the three domains, are strong in another one, and are weak in the third one.
I think it could be like this
Emma: main domain psychomotor (fast learner, she learnt to hunt and shoot in a very short time watching others' example, Mary Sue as our resident shitposter keeps saying), middle domain affective (keeps into consideration others' point of view, teamwork), weak domain cognitive (she is not that good in deductions and logic)
Ray: main cognitive (knowledge monster, incredible logic, recalled and deducted a way to kill demons in a deadly situation), middle psychomotor (learnt to cook pretty fast), weak affective (had almost no motivation, wanted to kill himself, now he's better at this)
Norman: main affective (muh Emma, everything revolves around this) middle cognitive (very good at planning, logic), weak psychomotor (weak as fuck, I don't know if it counts, but whatever)
Do you think it's stretched? Did Shirai actually think of this when he created his characters?
