How to Find Your Learning Style

1.Read about the different types of training.

To determine your learning style, it’s important to understand the differences between learner types. There are many books and websites you can use to research this topic. Go to your local library and ask the reference librarian. Or contact your school’s academic advisor for information.
Most people recognize that there are 7 different learning styles: visual, auditory, verbal, physical, logical, social, and solitary. People usually associate with several of these styles.
Ask your school counselor for some information. This person should be familiar with all styles.

2.Try visual learning.

After some research, started experimenting with different learning styles. It might be helpful to try a new way of learning to get to know your style. You can start with visual learning, which means you can use pictures and other images to learn.
Ask yourself if you rely on images to help you understand important topics. For example, when you read biology text, do you find diagrams more useful than written material?
Try adding more images to the subject you’re researching. If you are studying for a history exam, create a diagram illustrating key topics. You can become a visual learner if it helps.
If you’re a visual learner, you may find it easier to navigate using a marked map rather than written directions.

3.Try auditory learning.

Hearing or hearing means you learn most effectively through sound and music. If you’re not sure if this applies to you, take some time to add a voice to your study session. You can start by reading selected passages from your textbook aloud or listening to an audiobook to see if it helps you focus and understand the text.
If you need to hear something aloud to fully understand a concept, you can become a hearer. Experiment by repeating key concepts to your classmates to see if the material works for you.
Do you find yourself talking while reading? This applies to auditory learning. Another sign that you are hearing is that you are often distracted by pictures and words.
Come up with some rhymes to help you remember the material in the next lesson. For example, “President Carter will never make a deal with the Soviet Union”. If this sounds helpful, you may be an auditory learner.

4.Learn through words.

Oral learners are best at using spoken and written words. If you are an avid reader, you may find oral teaching easier. Reading is one of the most effective ways to remember information.
Ask yourself if you feel most comfortable listening to a speech or presentation. Language learners often resist group projects or activities.
As you study, do you summarize the material in writing? This shows that oral language learning is your top priority.

5.Learn with exercise.

Kinesthetic learning is another common learning style. Physical learners rely on their hands, touch and physical activity. Movement is the key to retaining information for this style of learning.
If you get nervous at the thought of listening to a lecture, you can learn better through physical activity. Are you very worried? This is another sign.
Try adding some exercise to your routine to see if you exercise well. Try standing up and reading a book.
Use physical objects as much as possible. Try making cards so you can actually scroll through the information.

6.Learn logic.

Another learning style you can try is logical learning. Logic students are puzzle solvers who prefer to use reasoning and systems to find answers. People who are good at math usually learn logic.
To determine if you are a logic learner, try to reformulate your perception of the material. Look at each part, not the whole picture.
For example, if you’re studying World War II, don’t just think about who won the war. Take the time to think about the why and how.
Making connections is one of the keys to learning logic. If you instinctively draw clear boundaries between different subjects, then you are probably a logical student.

7.Learn with others.

Some people learn best when they interact with others. Social learners learn best in small groups, or at least
