they are specific steps for specific jobs, and it is much easier for the person to understand. for example: tying shoelaces, there are specific steps for it to sink into a child's head how to tie them.

Psychomotor skills are those skills that you have done so often that you don't think about how to do them while you are doing them. As well as tying shoelaces, riding a bike is another example. At first, you really have to concentrate on the steps, later your brain takes over.
