Personally, i would think that I am a visual learner. When lessons or new things are being taught, if i wrote the things down, it will cause a better learning result. For one, i know that i can’t remember the huge amount of information in a short time for very long. If I were to read a textbook, i would usually remember it by which part of the page it is placed under. This definitely helped me in learning things.
I took a test from one of our classmate’s link too, to have a little test
What’s Your Learning Style? The Results

You are a Visual learner! Check out the information below, or view all of the learning styles.
If you are a visual learner, you learn by reading or seeing pictures. You understand and remember things by sight. You can picture what you are learning in your head, and you learn best by using methods that are primarily visual. You like to see what you are learning.
As a visual learner, you are usually neat and clean. You often close your eyes to visualize or remember something, and you will find something to watch if you become bored. You may have difficulty with spoken directions and may be easily distracted by sounds. You are attracted to color and to spoken language (like stories) that is rich in imagery.
Here are some things that visual learners like you can do to learn better:
- Sit near the front of the classroom. (It won’t mean you’re the teacher’s pet!)
- Have your eyesight checked on a regular basis.
- Use flashcards to learn new words.
- Try to visualize things that you hear or things that are read to you.
- Write down key words, ideas, or instructions.
- Draw pictures to help explain new concepts and then explain the pictures.
- Color code things.
- Avoid distractions during study times.
Remember that you need to see things, not just hear things, to learn well.
One of the questions i found interesting was, “if u met a person at the party, how would you remember the person?” my answer was i would remember the face, but not the name. I see the face “physically” but not the name. if it was written, i might have remembered it more clearly? I shall try this next time.
Another thing that i found out is that, if i dont remember the person’s face or name, sometimes, i am able to recognise them (find them familiar) by their voices. Could this be one of my other learning style too?
However, even if i have a “best” learning style, I think that it is still good to try to incorporate the different styles for learning. Not all subjects will suit a “visual” learning. It is good for us to slowly find out through experience and time about that suits which style the best
