What kind of learner are you?

Here's an interesting note.
Learning styles refer to the variations in your ability to accumulate as well as assimilate information. Basically, your learning style is the method that best allows you to gather and use knowledge in a specific manner. (http://www.ldpride.net/)
In general we hear the experts say that there are three kinds of learning styles, viz.:
  • Visual learning - learning by seeing, watching, perceiving etc.;
  • Auditory learning - learning by listening, hearing, discussing etc. ; and
  • Kinesthetic/tactile learning - learning by experiencing, hands-on, role play etc.
Most of us usually possess a single style or could possess a combination of different learning styles, which can usually be observed at a relatively young age. Identifying one's learning style helps him to adapt the learning process and maximize personal, professional and academic / educational opportunities.

If you want to know what kind of learner you are, you can visit http://www.ldpride.net/learning-style-test.html and take a simple test. It is interesting!! The site even has a freely downloadable book on 'Understanding Your Learning Styles'. You may even identify the learning style of your child, so that the next time your child shows low interest in listening to the lessons, you may try an alternative technique!!
