What's YOUR Learning Style?

 

Purpose:

  • To learn about learning styles.
  • To understand the differences between auditory, visual, and kinesthetic learners.
  • To identify your own learning style.

There are three basic types of learning styles. The three most common are visual, auditory, and kinesthetic. To learn, we depend on our senses to process the information around us. Most people tend to use one of their senses more than the others. Today's lesson will help you determine which of these learning styles you rely on the most.

There is a series of 16 questions which are related to the three main learning styles. Read the question and select the answer which fits you the closest. Don't think about the questions too much. Go with your first choice. After you answer each of these questions, just click on the submit button at the bottom of the page. If you are connected to the internet, the computer will evaluate the results and display how many of each answer you selected.

Once the computer has evaluated your answers, it will show your primary learning style. You may have two primary learning style and that is ok because some people depend on two or more types of learning styles.

It is not unusual to use different learning styles for different tasks. That's why people can respond so differently to the same thing.
