What is your learning style?

 One size does not fit all when it comes to learning.

There are four types of learners - visual, auditory, read-write and kinesthetic. Each type listens differently, learns differently and uses different memory systems. Learn more about the types of learners here. Recognizing how you learn best can speed your learning processes.


If you love audio books, speak slowly and think in a linear fashion you are probably an auditory learner. Learning from recorded instructions works for you.

If you talk quickly, find yourself interrupting other speakers, and enjoy visualizing you are probably a visual learner. Charts, graphs and pictures help you learn. You might be a doodler. Tony Byzan's mind maps are just what you need. I found this one helpful.


If you like text based presentations, reading how-to's and reading and writing in all forms you are most likely in the read-write learner category. 

Kinesthetic learners like hands-on problem solving with trial-and-error processes, are slow to make decisions and engage all their senses when learning. They also enjoy any activity that includes body movement - like dancing, swimming or running.


As with many categorized processes for humans, many folk may have a primary learning form but draw on one or more of the others as well.  

As a visual learner, I learned to crochet and cut hair from magazine articles. My kinesthetic side comes out when I  crochet from a picture and learn by doing, unraveling and doing again. And I love to dance and learn exercise routines.

What type of learner are you?

  1. Excellent post! I'm a visual learner. When learning a new task, I like to watch first and then experiment on my own. Thanks for sharing, Mahrie :)

    1. Yes - I know what you mean about experimenting. My attempts don't always work the first time - but I watch, try and eventually get it.
