The Visual/ Verbal Learning Style

You learn best when information is presented visually and in a written language format. In a classroom setting, you benefit from instructors who use the blackboard (or overhead projector) to list the essential points of a lecture, or who provide you with an outline to follow along with during lecture. You benefit from information obtained from textbooks and class notes. You tend to like to study by yourself in a quiet room. You often see information "in your mind's eye" when you are trying to remember som ething.





The Visual/ Nonverbal Learning Style

You learn best when information is presented visually and in a picture or design format. In a classroom setting, you benefit from instructors who use visual aids such as film, video, maps and charts. You benefit from information obtained from the pictures and diagrams in textbooks. You tend to like to work in a quiet room and may not like to work in study groups. When trying to remember something, you can often visualize a picture of it in your mind. You may have an artistic side that enjoys activities ha ving to do with visual art and design.



The Tactile/ Kinesthetic Learning Style

You learn best when physically engaged in a "hands on" activity. In the classroom, you benefit from a lab setting where you can man ipulate materials to learn new information. You learn best when you can be physically active in the learning environment. You benefit from instructors who encourage in-class demonstrations, "hands on" student learning experiences, and field work outside t he classroom.



The Auditory/ Verbal Learning Style

You learn best when information is presented auditory in an oral language format. In a classroom setting, you benefit from listening to lecture and participating in group discussions. You also benefit from obtaining information from audio tape. When trying to remember something, you can often "hear" the way someone told you the information, or the way you previously repeated it out loud. You learn best when interacting with others in a listening/speaking exchange .

I'm all for the written word, I love my lecturers they give the talks but then give us all the information on paper. I have to say although I am listening it's only vaguely registering. I even think in words, I was trying to explain it to my husband and the best I can do is it's like an auto cue running in front of my eyes. I can see the words I'm saying and thinking, it also comes with a voice in my head which strangely is male what's that all about!!
My husband is completely the opposite he thinks in pictures and is very visual.

I am a mixture. I like to read about it, then have it explained and shown, then do it myself.

I can sort of remember a lot of useless facts. Like your birthday is 11/4 and from Seattle, WA and you want to go to VEGAS for the CoM conference. But I cant remember important information. It sucks.
