Hello,

I'm just curious what people think is the best way they learn.

Me personally i'm a kinesthetic learner (but i learn little from experiments) and a visual learner (but i remember the colours when i highlight stuff instead of the word behind it)

Any ideas how to make the most of how you learn?

I've always found teaching people is a good way to make sure you understand it

@Desy: Just type in "what type of learner" into Google and you'll find some tests. :)

Here are a few:

I haven't taken an actual test, but I learn best visually. Colours help me remember (highlighters!), bold writing, pictures.

I can't learn very well when just told something, but a visual helps. (So I can learn orally/visually - they enhance each other when together.)

And making mistakes; when I get it wrong and find out how it's wrong, I remember it better.

I'm an all-three kinda learner :P I have no special skillz in this area. Possibly I find kinaesthetic learning least my style. Not because it doesn't help me, but because it takes ages and usually involves doing something extremely lame, whereas just being told something or shown something is a thousand times quicker. I have a short attention span when it comes to people making inefficient use of my time in explaining things!

thanks guys for the link! :D I'm equally Visual and Auditory, and a little bit of the other one. I actually like listening to lectures more than reading books, but I'm okay with both!

The best way for me to learn something is to pre-read it, get talk over the topic, do a mini proof (Physics) and then post read that day and a week later.

If I had to pick one, then Visual and just simple words.

I would probably say I'm visual.

I have a somewhat photographic memory, so if I use heaps of colours, diagrams, things like that, it helps me remember because I can just remember the image without too much trouble.

I'm mostly visual; during an exam I can visualize textbook pages in my head, read off the answers and write them down.

But I'm auditory too, mostly in the case of numbers. Like if you say your phone number really fast I can remember it.

I'm mostly kinesthetic and a little bit visual. If I want to remember something I have to do i myself, or logically explain it. On the other hand, I sometimes use diagram to systematize my knowledge, particularly when leraning about history events.

I'm mostly kinesthetic but I am also somewhat visual and not at all auditory. In math I have to do an example problem otherwise I'm not going to grasp the concept at all. And in other general things if I just do what someone is teaching me to do after a few times I'll be able to do the same thing nearly flawless. I'm partially visual (I like to see pictures of graphs and stuff too when I'm learning). I'm not auditory at all. If you just tell me how to do something without showing me pictures or letting me be involved in it I'm not going to remember it at all!
