What are the differences in our learning behaviours?
By Bryan Schriiffer – M Prof Studs(Transport), MNZIM, CIPs
There are life coaches, teachers, careers advisors and others who are making thousands of dollars a year on the topic of training, learning and providing education
There is of course the other side of the coin, people who like some of us, went through the school system and did not do well, we didn’t achieve great results and found it hard to learn. What we were not taught and we didn’t realise there were different learning styles to the one used by teachers to give us an education. Once you identify and understand how you learn, it can change your life.
There are seven main learning styles, figure out your particular learning style from the list below and it may just change your life. It means that you can use your learning style to make information “stick”. You will be impowered and can make amazing things happen with this knowledge
Here they are, I hope you find value in this information and that it will change your life:
- Visual (spatial): You prefer using pictures, images, and spatial understanding.
- Aural (auditory-musical): You prefer using sound and music.
- Verbal (linguistic): You prefer using words, both in speech and writing.
- Physical (kinaesthetic): You prefer using your body, hands and sense of touch.
- Logical (mathematical): You prefer using logic, reasoning and systems.
- Social (interpersonal): You prefer to learn in groups or with other people.
