Everyone learns differently. Some of us need to write things down; some need to hear instructions out loud, and some of us can’t figure something out until we’ve had a chance to actually do it with our own hands. There’s no right or wrong way to learn, but if you can figure out your learning style and use it to your advantage, there’s no limit to what you can achieve.
You are all about reading and seeing. You process information best by picturing what you’re learning in your head, and by looking at pictures and diagrams. When you are trying to remember something, there’s a chance you close your eyes and visualise the situation. You’re probably easily distracted by loud noises, and if you don’t have something to look at, you become bored. You must have loved those days at school when the teacher wheeled the TV into the classroom.
You learn best by hearing and listening. You store information by the way it sounds, and you follow instruction better if you hear them, rather than read them. You take information in best if you read it aloud to yourself, or have other people read it to you. You are great at processing information that you hear, even in a noisy room. When you hear songs you know, you sing or hum along, and you probably learnt all the lyrics before all your friends.
You learn by touching and doing. You find it frustrating sitting in a classroom, listening to someone explain concepts, or having to write extensive notes. The best way for you to learn something is to just start doing it, and practicing until you have it down pat. You need to be active, take frequent breaks, and it’s important that you know not just how something works, but why. When you drive, you remember the route, but possibly not the street names and landmarks. You probably got in trouble for dismantling radios when you were a kid. You just wanted to know how it worked, right?
Most people are a mix of the above, but one style usually resonates more. Figure it out, and nail your study.
