Sorry, no etymologies found.
A writer of a method article in a recent issue of _The Sunday School Times_ related an incident of a chap whom he described as "a motor-minded boy."
For example, aside from the desirable rate of advance for each person, which has already been mentioned, a student maybe eye-minded, or ear - minded, or motor-minded.
It assumes that all and especially the motor-minded can really understand only what they make, and that one can work like a peasant and think like a philosopher.
The latter have often greater sympathy, readiness of memory, patience with technic, skill in literature and language, but lack originality, are not attracted by unsolved problems, are less motor-minded; but their training is just as serious and important as that of men.
