    While some research suggests teaching techniques should match the student's learning style, this paper argues it may be more fruitful to use techniques aimed at encouraging latent personality characteristics. The paper will discuss the origins of Bloom's taxonomy, the relationship between the Bloom's higher order skills and traits exhibited by accountants per the True Colors personality profile, explain why millennial students are reluctant to be independent thinkers, and provide suggestions for encouraging synthesis and evaluation in either graduate or Intermediate level financial accounting courses.
