Visual Learner

Visual (spatial) Learner

These students can easily visualize information, have a good sense of direction and usually likes to draw and doodle.  

Aural Learner

Sound and music are a strong suit for these types of learners who typically have a good sense of rhythm. These learners are usually singers or musicians who are familiar with different instruments and the sounds they make. Aural learners are good listeners who normally learn best through verbal presentations like lectures and speeches. 

Verbal Learner

These learners prefer using words, both in speech and writing. They can easily express themselves and usually love to read and write. Verbal learners tend to have a vast vocabulary and excel in activities that involve speaking, debating, and journalism. 

Physical Learner

Physical (kinesthetic) Learner

Whether it’s by using their body or hands, these learners are all about the sense of touch. Physical activities and sports play a big part in these student’s lives. Getting hands-on is a must for these learners who love to tinker and learn best when they can do rather than see or hear. 

Logical Learner

Logical (mathematical) Learner

If there is logic, reasoning and numbers involved, these learners are sure to excel. These students function and solve complex problems by employing strategies and their scientific way of thinking. Computer programming, math and science are usually favored by these types of learners. 

Social Learner

Social (interpersonal) Learner

Learning in groups and working with others is favored by social learners. These students know how to communicate effectively and enjoy collaborating with others, brainstorming and discussing ideas and concepts. Social learners are generally good listeners who are thoughtful and understanding. 

Solitary Learner

These students prefer to use self-study and work alone. They are independent and are very self-aware and in tune with their thoughts and feelings. These learners prefer being away from the crowds and learn best in a quiet place where they can focus on the task at hand.
