This essay discusses investigative questions concerning the possible conditions and patterns of passive learning revealed by current college students. Also, this discussion illustrates some misunderstandings of learning processes, including some deconstructive cultural dispositions of current college students. Further, this essay demonstrates a lack of inquiry-based and/or critical thinking strategies being implemented in current learning organizations and suggests that performance-based assimilation or achievement-based ideology is preferred over risk taking and creative inquiry in learning. This essay also suggests, and an assertion is made as well, that standardization and test-driven training and learning in organizations must be re-addressed, redesigned, altered, minimized, or, perhaps, must end in favor of a more liberally oriented learning format. Finally, this essay briefly explains why some of those in today’s millennium generation may be in such a state of information overload that articulating personal belief systems has become painfully difficult and is accomplished at best in fragments.
