The Seven Learning Styles

Visual (Spatial)

You prefer using pictures, images, and spatial understanding
Aural (Auditory-musical) You prefer using sound and music
Verbal (Linguistic) You prefer using words, both in speech and writing

Physical (Kinesthetic)

You prefer body, hands and sense of touch
Logical (mathematical) You prefer using logic, reasoning and systems
Social (interpersonal) You prefer to learn in groups or with other people
Solitary (intrapersonal) You prefer to work alone and use self-study

I was not aware there were so many different learning styles.  I personally don’t think that my learning style can be confined to any one of these but rather a combination of each.  I recently went through a personality profile exercise in a communications course which asks you to rate descriptions that best apply to you on a scale of one to four (Four being the most applicable and one being the least).  The outcome of which shows which areas you are strongest and weakest in.  I have attached a scanned copy of this, my apologies for the quality, it is a copy of a copy.  I think something similar would be of value when it comes to learning styles  Oh and btw, my two stronest colours on the personality test were blue followed by orange, which was no surprise to me!
