Learning Styles

Understand the Learning Styles and how they relate to you

38%Kinesthetic
32%Auditory
30%Visual

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.

Kinesthetic

38%

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

Auditory

32%

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

Visual

30%

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

That recognition might come in the form of an award, a promotion or a sincere “Thank You!” for something we’ve done. It could be the celebrity that comes along with being a famous (or notorious) performer or public figure. Recognition might even come in the form of increased responsibility, managing a team, important activities or large budgets.

Overview

INFP (The Healer)

INFPs prefer to work independently and tend to feel more at ease when alone or in a small group. They also tend to be reflective and self-aware, and enjoy thinking about ideas. Although INFPs may have good social skills, they generally prefer to avoid the spotlight as well as small talk, and may prefer written communication over verbal. They’re also more likely to think before speaking and have good impulse control.

INFPs need room to explore and to be creative without constraints. When approaching a task, they prefer flexibility and options to concrete goals and deadlines. They may also believe that structure and planning interferes with creative processes, and will avoid routine and schedules. INFPs likely have difficulty planning and prefer to “dive into” a project, sometimes appearing haphazard in their approach. They may also be disorganized in their ideas and have difficulty explaining these ideas to others. When dealing with information, INFPs tend to collect as much of it as possible and to look for the big picture, rather than focusing on details, which makes INFPs good at forming connections and spotting emerging trends. However, they likely overthink things and that, combined with their aversion to details and structure, may mean they struggle to accomplish their tasks.

When faced with a decision, INFPs 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”. INFPs 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.
