What Your Learning Style Says About The Way You Work

Did you study the pictures on the pages? Or did you just rip the box open and get to it?There are several styles you could be, which one sounds the most like you?

2. Visual: 

A visual learner thinks in pictures, rather than words. They tend to see the bigger picture while missing out on the little details. They like using flash cards and mind maps to revise and works best individually.

Visual learners prefer diagrams and charts, tend to talk fast, think in pictures and take detailed notes. If you identify as a visual learner you should draw the information you need to remember, color code and highlight information,

3. Kinesthetic: 

A tactile learner learns through experience or physical activities, rather than sitting in a lecture or watching demonstrations. This person likes to be hands-on, has a tendency to doodle, and works best while on the move.
