    Personality type and learning style (tactile, visual, auditory)

    Just wondering,

    What's your personality type, and what type of learning style suits you best (auditory, visual, hand-on).

    Like, I'm ISTJ, and I think I learn best in an auditory fashion (like hearing things helps me remember it, so studying with friends helps). I'm not very visual, as I don't think pictures and charts help me that much. I need to see the words under a graph to help me understand what the graphs are presenting, for example. But I guess in some ways I can be visual because I won't necessarily understand what's going on in a complicated discussion. I would need to read about the info and contemplate it first. I don't think I'm very hands-on, other than that writing facts helps em to remember them.

    To summarize, I'd say I'm mostly auditory with some visual.

    I wanted to see if tehre is a coorelation between type preference and learnign style (although this thread probably won't demonstrate correlation, at least it's an interesting discussion).

    INTP - The Thinkers

    Well, I'm an INTP and I like to be able to try things myself. I do the typical man thing and try to build and operate things without looking at the instructions. I like to have the instructions there, as a reference, but I don't like to go by them. I find it quite easy to remember facts after hearing them as long as they're explained - I'm not going to listen to a list and remember it, but I can listen to a lecture.

    Discussing things usually helps me understand things better. And like Feefafo, I learn best by also being able to freely explore whatever it is that I'm trying to learn. Or if I can read about something and then either read another piece of information about it or discuss it freely with someone else, I'll probably have it down. Sometimes reading things and then just pondering them helps me understand them.

    But I need complexity as that's what helps me understand things...
    If I learn that, for instance, penguins live in the Antarctic, it'll be hard for me to remember it unless I have some greater context or understanding to go along with it. I could remember that best if it was explained to me why the penguins live there and what makes that the best climate for them and whatnot.

    I'm tired...This may not have been completely accurate, so I may come back tomorrow and post something else lol

    Visual and hands-on. Someone just can't tell me, I probably won't remember. I have to read, or say during a lecture, I'll be writing notes. The combination of seeing the words and the hands-on approach of writing them out cement the concepts in my memory.

    I really like being able to work things out for myself, too.

    Visual

    When I was in school, taking notes helped me the most. Teachers were mostly insignificant. I'd just read the chapter, take notes on the key points, and then rewrite those notes over and over and over.

    Trying things out myself is always the best way for me to learn. Putting things in to song helps me remember more than notes, and being able to listen and write helps reinforce better than reading and copying notes.

    Well...

    Type -> INTJ

    Learning style -> Let me read what I have to know. I do best by reading first, hands-on second and auditory is dead last in that list assuming that reading falls under visual though there is a level of abstraction there.

    Just to quantify this using MyPersonality, Personality Profile of JB King (Personality Type, Multiple Intelligences) :

    Personality Type:
    Extraverted / Introverted - 0% / 100%
    Sensing / Intuition - 37% / 63%
    Thinking / Feeling - 74% / 26%
    Judging / Perceiving - 95% / 5%

    Learning styles:
    Logical/Mathematical 100%
    Intrapersonal 90%
    Verbal/Linguistic 70%
    Visual/Spatial 45%
    Naturalist 30%
    Musical 30%
    Interpersonal 15%
    Bodily/Kinesthetic 15%

    I found that after I've taken notes that I never have to look at them again. It's like the act of writing it down seals it in my visual memory.

    I so wish that was the case for me. I have such a crap memory. Though, writing it down just once is still 100x better than trying to listen to a lecture or whatever.
