Social- These are learners who prefer social or interpersonal learning. If you’re best at socializing and communicating with people, then you can really benefit from social learning such as group study, or role-playing.

Physical- In this style, learning happens when the learner prefers learning through physical activity, over listening to a lecture or watching a demonstration. Those who have a preference for kinesthetic learning are called ‘do-ers’ and much prefer hands-on learning.

Writing and drawing diagrams can are physical activities that can really help.

•Solitary- You have a solitary style if you are more private, independent and introspective. Your focus is at its best when you concentrate on your thoughts and feelings without the distraction of others. Self-study is a great method for solitary learners.

•Aural- If you prefer listening to people to understand information, you are an auditory learner. Use sound, rhyme, and music in your learning. You can even use sound recordings, to help you learn and memorize better.

•Logical-When you like using your brain for logical and mathematical reasoning, you’re a logical learner. You easily recognize patterns. Aim to understand the logic behind the decisions you make. Creating lists or short notes of key points can help you with learning academic material.

Logical learners often lean towards classifying and grouping information to help them further understand it.

•Verbal- People who find it easier to express themselves by writing or speaking can be regarded as verbal learners. You love to write and read. Techniques used by verbal learners involve mnemonics, scripting, role-playing and anything that involves both speaking and writing.

•Visual- Are you constantly doodling? If you find it easier to understand something if it is in a diagram, you are probably a visual learner. Knowledge or concept maps use visual symbols as a way to express knowledge, concepts, thoughts or ideas, and the relationships between them. These are a great tool for visual or spatial learners as you can draw connections or use colour coding to group ideas. Mind Maps are also a great way to go about memorizing important concepts.
