Learn Faster, Learn Better: What Style Fits You Best?
Would you rather have 20/20 vision, better hearing than a dog or twice the amount of nerve endings in your fingers? The answer could be telling into your learning world.
Neil Fleming, an experienced New Zealand teacher, started a system to better suit the preferences of students based on neuro-linguistic programming that is widely used in schools today.
Fleming divided learners into three types: visual learners, auditory learners and tactile/kinesthetic learners.
That 5th grader who can remember the page numbers of test questions: visual learner.
The sophomore who checks out audio books instead of paperbacks: auditory learner.
How about the middle schooler who’s boss in a science lab or shop class: tactile all the way.
When it comes to your own personal learning style, you might already have a hunch but we’ve designed this quiz to help determine what fits you best. Don’t be surprised if you can relate to pieces of all three; it’s not uncommon to have a mix of preferences. With this knowledge under your belt, you can conquer the world! Well, you might not conquer the world (right away) but you might be able to study for that history exam in record time.
