Identifying your Learning Preference

If you find that you like using your brain for logical and mathematical reasoning you probably prefer the logical learning style. Logical learners can recognize patterns easily and are good at making logical connections between what would appear to most people to be meaningless content. If you're a logical learner you'll learn better if you classify and group information to help you learn and understand  better.

If social learning is your style, you'll communicate well will others, both verbally and non-verbally. You are good listeners and are able to understand others’ views. People listen to you and come to you for advice. Social learners prefer learning in groups or classes and typically like to spend one-on-one time with a teacher or an instructor.

If you have a solitary style of learning you tend to be private, introspective and/or independent. You're able to concentrate and focus on a specific subject, topic or concept without outside help. You are very self aware and able to analyze the different ways you think and feel. Solitary learners prefer to work on problems by retreating to somewhere quiet and working through possible solutions by themselves.  

So why is identifying and understanding your learning style so critical to your study preparation?

Identifying the learning preferences that best suits you is an important part of developing effective studying. In addition, by knowing how you learn best you can select those classes, teachers, subjects, majors and ultimate careers that appeal to your unique way of learning. ―
