There are seven different 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 using your 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.
Every person prefers different learning styles and techniques. There is no "right" or "wrong" way to process information. Learning styles group common ways that people learn. Most people have a combination of learning styles with one style being more dominant. Others may find that they use different styles in different circumstances.
At Strategic Mentoring we can teach you to develop ability in less dominant styles, as well as further develop styles that you already use well. Answering these questions about yourself will help you gain insight into what your strengths are as well as where you have the potential for growth.
- Do you prefer do it yourself, hands on trying to work it out?
- Do you approach learning through experimenting, trial and error first, without seeking direction?
- Do you seek out videos or YouTube demos before starting?
- Do you seek guidance before starting, or seeking feedback while your work is in progress?
- Do you read (or get) directions first and then extrapolate that information into your own creative efforts?
- Do you debrief projects after the fact to gain the lessons learned?
- Do you use a coach or mentor?
Consider what your answers have shown you about yourself.
Where do you see opportunities for growth?
