What Do You See?

If you are the kind of perso who picks up a book or a magazine and scrolls through, looking at the graphs, tables and headlines before you dive into the actual words in the article or chapter, then you are a visual learner.

You relate best to symbols, charts and diagrams and information that is presented in a hierachy of sorts. This does not necessarily mean videos and photographs but rather the holistic presentation of data and information.

Information presented like this will appeal to you the most.

Visual learners do not like information being presented to them in bits and pieces. They much prefer having the whole overview so that they can make their own interpretations.

Questions To Consider

When learning from the Internet I like:

  • - audio channels where I can listen to podcasts or interviews.
  • - interesting written descriptions, lists and explanations.
  • - interesting design and visual features.
  • - videos showing how to do or make things.

A website has a video showing how to make a special graph or chart. There is a person speaking, some lists and words describing what to do and some diagrams. I would learn most from:

  • - reading the words.
  • - listening.
  • - watching the actions.
  • - seeing the diagrams.

Let's explore Auditory Learning.

Thank you Cassi for a post on a fascinating and far from simplistic subject. I say this because the sense preferences that we use for learning are a reflection of the senses we tend to use for communicating internally with ourselves (thinking) and externally, with other people. Understanding our own. and especially other people’s use of senses is a key to excellent communications.
Does that make sense to you?

It certainly does, Richard, and I agree totally.

This is an important aspect of communication, for the sender and the receiver.

Thank you for reading the tutorial and for your insightful feedback.
