    Default Learning Style

    Visual, Auditory, Kinesthetic

    I'm a very visual learner myself. Is it type related?

    I would expect rationals to be fairly visual learners.

    Because internal storage for rationals is visual/intuitive. The less processing to get to that, the faster the understanding.

    This is what my theory is.

    Visual/intuitive = Perceiving functions? Why would that be the internal storage for Rationals?

    WTF is this kinesthetic stuff? I'm visual probably, I want to know how things apply, to see them working. For example, if I learn a new something (eg. programming language), I can't write everything from the tutorial until the end to understand, I have to adapt each step to make it work alone and see immediate results.
    Seeing them working is the Kinesthetic (hands-on). Visual is more looking at diagrams.

    Hmm, I hadn't related it to functions, actually.

    I was just going off what Gulenko (I think?) said: rationals think in images and focus on T and F in communication; irrationals think in words and focus on changes in S and N in communication.

    Haha yep, thats about right. I try to avoid aural explanations as much as possible. If I need help one on one, I'll ask the professor/TA how to do something. If they just spoke, I pretend to have listened and understood all of that then ask for an example.

    these are basically emphases from the moment. it's very plausible for me to take this test and answer strongly visual, or strongly practical learning. i have developed the skill to do all of these. probably reading is the one i currently emphasize the least as opposed to possessing skills at expressing myself in writing.

    I'm a sponge! Osmosis should be high on pretty much all the modalities, right? Unless you mean osmosis by sleeping on a book, in which case it would be purely kinesthetic.

    I can't focus on listening unless whatever is being said is very interesting - I've had a teacher or two who could get my attention, but overall it's something I'd expected to have significantly low score on. Also, I think audiobook is the worst fate that can happen to book. I'm surprised at relatively high kinesthetics, probably because I didn't have problems learning in read/write or visual style, so I usually haven't felt much need to resort to hands-on approach, though it's good.

    Multimodal (VR):

    * Aural: 7
    * Read/Write: 12
    * Kinesthetic: 7

    Probably explains why I spend a lot of time on the computer surfing the net and email as preferred mode of communication.

    I can't help but wonder why you comment on the result which is least likely to be witnessed online (since type of communication does affect it, see aural vs read/write). FYI it makes sense for me - including the same context as I see you've mentioned, programming - as well as the interpretation of the results above 30 and below 25 in case of multimodal learners:

    Context Specific Approach

    Those who have a multimodal approach to learning and decision making are now seen in two groups with a indistinct boundary or transition between them. Some act like those people with a single preference except that they have two three or four Ńsingleć preferences. They look at the information that has to be learned or conveyed to another person and choose the mode that they believe is the best one for that situation. In a sense they are context specific choosing the mode that best fits the need. For example, if they are signing a legal document they "switch on" their Read/write preference. If they have to learn a physical skill they will use their kinesthetic preference to work with it, to try it and to become practical. This group switches from mode to mode and they have the flexibility to adapt to a number of different modes both incoming and outgoing. They may sometimes choose a mode incorrectly and when working with them we need to be aware of the mode that they have chosen. We can match their mode or suggest that they switch to a more appropriate one. Blank looks and inappropriate feedback will indicate that they are out-of-sync. From the VARK Questionnaire this group tends to have a low total score –somewhere between 16 and 25.


    Whole-Sense Approach

    This second group within the multimodal category uses a number of their modes (2, 3 or all four) in combination, to make decisions and to learn and to present materials to others. They are uncertain about any learning that comes in only one way and they want to reinforce it by adding other modes of input or output. For example in a college or university setting they may gather some of the ideas from the teacherşs oral explanations, and some from discussing and questioning their colleagues. They may add to this by using the textbook or by thinking about some practical applications of the new idea they have learned. They may also use their visual preference to draw some form of schematic diagram of the material to be learned. Together these choices use V, A R and K and only then are they satisfied that they really understand something. In a cocahing scene they may want to check out any print instructions by chatting with the coach or other athletes or they may want to map out their response in some diagrammatic way. Often they will want to step through a sequence of visual, oral or written instructions in some physical or quasi-physical way.

    Some, may criticise them for taking a long time to make a decision. That is because they are being careful and gathering a wider view before acting. This group tends to have total VARK scores above 30. You may recognise their need to examine things from many perspectives. They may act and decide slowly which may annoy someone who acts quickly and wants to move on.

    This group takes longer to become confident about their learning because they have to gather in all two, three or four modes to really understand something. They are not contnet with half-learning something. The pay-back is that, when they do so, their understanding of their new learning is more versatile and more sure than those with only a single preference. This is an advantage if they have to express or hand on their learning to others (say, as teachers) because they will have a deeper and wider understanding of it. They can see things from many perspectives. The disadvantage that this group has is that they may not be able to gather in the many ways that would be satisfying so they often half-learn new material and it is not fully understood. If their teacher or coach uses only one mode to explain something – say a Read/write teacher who uses a text book most of the time or a coach who only demonstrates a technique, - they may have difficulty learning that skill or information. They are unlike those with a single preference because they are reluctant to act on a single mode. They worry about missing other perspectives on a problem or Ńmaking a major decision on insufficient evidenceć. In one study of students who asked for help from a learning centre, a high proportion were multimodal V A R K. Some complained that they did not get enough teaching. Others said there was not enough variety in their learning.

    Interesting information on the Whole-Sense Approach. It is true of me.
