What kind of a Learner are You?

Have you ever taken an online test, be it in your workplace or school to understand what kind of a learner are you? Identifying and understanding how you learn the best can most definitely heighten your productivity and efficiency. Each learning style takes on a variety of forms. Here are the 4 types of learners: visual, auditory, kinesthetic and reading/writing.

1. Visual

Visual learners describe people with a preference for visual learning. They are more prone to see and observe things, understand and grasping information better through sight - information that are being presented visually in a graph, pictures, diagrams, and such. If you are a visual learner, try doing your notes highly visual to show the relationships between your points. On the downside, they do require more time to process and observe the visual representation. Visual learners are also likely to struggle with listening to information that is not written out.

2. Auditory

One who learns by remembering and understanding the things heard are auditory learners. These group of people should reinforce information, ideas or concepts by reading out loud to themselves. They are also less likely to be afraid to verbally explain things or speaking up. Asking questions or engaging in group discussions can help them process and understand the information efficiently. However, they might be slower at reading.
