I am a visual kinesthetic learner according to the survey I just took. I am an equal balance of all three, with a 34% visual, 34% kinesthetic, and a 32% auditory. Because I have an equal balance I have to take advantage of all three learning styles.
I am 34% visual learner so that means I learn by sight. I prefer using images, pictures, colours, and maps to organize information and communicate with others. I can visualize plans, and outcomes, I also have a good spatial sense which helps to give me a sense of direction. I can easily find my way around by using a map or some other kind of direction assisting device. When focused I tend to do well in a classroom setting.
I am also 34% kinesthetic learner which means I process information best when physically engaged. It also means I have a hard time learning during traditional school lectures. This is because my body does not engage with the learning because there is no movement. I need to take frequent breaks and make hand gestures when I talk. The strengths of being a kinesthetic learner are: good hand eye coordination, quick reflexes, a good motor memory good at sports and a high level of energy.
And lastly I am 32% auditory, which means I learn through listening. I need to learn through speaking and listening. I must be able to hear what is being said in order to understand and may have difficulty with instructions that are drawn but if the writing is in a logical order it can be understood. The strengths of auditory learners are: class discussions, learning languages, understanding grammar, telling stories and remembering music and lyrics.
