What type of learner are you?

Err... today at a local demonstration in a kindergarten school I learned about the types of Learner.

1. Visual Learner
2. Auditory Learner
3. Kinesthetic Learner

The first two are self explanatory while the last one is new to me. Read up on google if you do not know the third one.

Just wondering on my fellow rancher, at your present age right now? What type of learner are you do you think?

Visual.

I get it when I read the text, or diagram etc. Sometime, I can even remember that where a particular text was in book (e.g. top of left side page etc.) - I don't remember it purposefully though, it just comes to my mind sometimes.

I usually have Tank upload what I need when I'm jacked-in to the Construct.

This idea has been around for several decades. This thread states the original idea, but thinking and research have evolved, and most learning experts these days would say that everyone uses all three types of learning. Some people might feel that they have *slight* preferences, but in studies, those preferences don't really hold up well.

But, from a learning and teaching perspective, most everybody DOES benefit when instruction includes approaches from two or three of those channels as opposed to instruction that focuses only on one of the three channels.

Excellent point Bert.. so that's why I love reading the Head First Series... seeing those funny pics and then doing the exercise adds to your learning experience..

I am a doing it learner, until something makes sense there is no way it will ever stick in there.

As such i have problems with abstract concepts such as remembering names, there is no story or logic there.
