Learning Styles

Understand the Learning Styles and how they relate to you


Whatever your strongest Learning Style(s) results are, the best way to learn something is to try to use all three Learning Style approaches whenever you can. Because different activities use different parts of our brain, when we use different ways to do or learn the same thing, our minds do a better job of remembering it.



If you are a kinesthetic learner, you prefer to learn by touching and doing. You likely need to be active, take frequent breaks, and make gestures when you talk and explain something. Your preference is for hands-on experiences, tasks that involve manipulating materials, and you appreciate physically expressed encouragement when you communicate.

Study Tips

  • Participate in more hands-on tasks during learning
  • Use Flash cards to sort concepts
  • Study in short blocks of time and give yourself breaks
  • Construct a model or representation of concepts



Being an auditory learner means you learn by hearing and listening. You might prefer to listen to audio books or podcasts, hum or talk to yourself often when you are studying, and enjoy acquiring knowledge by reading aloud. What is most important is that you hear what is being instructed.

Study Tips

  • Record yourself reading your notes and listen to them
  • Talk with someone about the topic
  • Repeat information with your eyes closed
  • Listen to recorded media related to the subject



As a visual learner, you learn by looking and seeing. You probably like to take numerous detailed notes, tend to sit in the front, often close your eyes to visualize or remember something, and benefit from illustrations and presentations that use colour.

Study Tips

  • Underline or highlight key ideas in your notes
  • Use graphic organizers (i.e., mind map, Venn diagram, web)
  • Pause, and try to create a mental image in your mind, or pause, and draw a visual representation
  • Turn concepts into charts and diagrams

Personality Reflection


ENFJ (The Teacher)

ENFJs tend to be outgoing and to feel at ease in large groups or when working as part of a team. They likely enjoy the spotlight, socializing, and working through problems by discussing them with others. ENFJs also tend to be empathetic, diplomatic, and good at “reading” people. They likely feel invigorated when working in a group and may be impulsive, sometimes speaking their minds without careful consideration.

When approaching a new task, the ENFJ prefers concrete goals and deadlines over flexibility and options, which may be perceived as road blocks. They also tend to collect as much information as possible and to focus on the big picture, rather than on details. Their tendency to focus on the big picture makes them good at spotting emerging trends, although they may also form connections that do not really exist. ENFJs benefit from their tendency to plan and adhere to deadlines because they can be disorganized with their ideas, which may mean that they have difficulty communicating their ideas to others.

When faced with a decision, ENFJs tend to consider how it will affect others, and are likely viewed by others as being caring and considerate. They also tend to be flexible in their thinking and recognize the complexity of issues, rather than seeing things as being “black or white”. ENFJs put more emphasis on teamwork and getting along, and their supportive nature may mean that they put the needs of others before their own or are easily persuaded. Nevertheless, the ENFJ is likely openminded, understanding, and good at resolving conflict.
