I'm definitely a visual learner, things like diagrams and presentations keep me interested and if I can't see the speaker/have good eye contact with them then I tend to... nearly fall asleep :P I am also a kinesthetic learner, I enjoy trying things out for myself and I fidget all the time lol.

I'm a visual learner! I like being shown stuff to get the idea of something. I'm decent at auditory learning as well, but usually only when I find the subject interesting.

Absolutely, 100% no doubt about it Kinesthetic learner.
I HAVE to do something before I can learn it properly. That's why I do terrible at exams (Well that and not studying).

I don't knwo which mine is? When I did these tests in school there were 4 options. Out of the 12 tests I done within the 5 years I always got Music learner. I learned through listening to music. I don't learn through listening to people and things though, so I don't understand your poll.

Its mainly what do you feel best learning with.
I have great difficulty learning stuff by reading about it in a book. To use my area as an example, to learn how to correctly frame someone for a shot on camera. I learn it better by doing it hands on than reading how to in a book or by someone telling me how its done.

I am a auditory learner, and have been since i was small i reckon. I would love the visual one, because that would be a lot easier to study with lol. But nope i am auditory, and apparently it is down to how i have played instruments since i was young and singing. Being able to distinguish notes and music has made me turn into this person who talks out loud when studying or working, i even have certain music for certain modules on when im studying - which really helps lol as i get into the mindset for that module, it is crazy how it works.

When i was revising for my A levels, my mum bought me this dictaphone. So instead of writing loads of notes, i would read things and speak them into this thing. Once i was done with a page or something i would listen to it over and over. And it just went in :)

Same goes whenever i needed to learn lines, normal people will read it over and over. But for me I will speak out loud and recite the lines. Or i would split the paragraphs up into verses, like a song lol.

Once you know what type of learner you are, you can develop the way you study or learn. I am so glad ive known since highschool. I know people who have no idea what type they are and struggle when it comes to work.

Trying to learn math is difficult when you learn hands on.

I agree on that, learning photography or active things (like cooking, drawing etc etc) I need hands on, but normally I'm like Andrea. :) Auditory learner. I need to hear first, then talk/discuss and also read.
In maths and similar subjects repetition is the only thing that works for me, and lots of it during a longer period or a very short period if it's only for a test.

I have to say.... all 3!!!

Like, I need to have something in my hand or I can't focus. If there is nothing visual involved then I am completely lost. I always have to be able to see whoever is speaking. But, hearing is just as important for me to be able to focus. But, if I had to pick one I would say visual is the most important. But, if I didnt have all 3... idk... I wouldn't be able to learn lol.

Haha, yeah, I'm not one for much studying either to be honest.

I'm definitely a kinesthetic learner. I have to do something before I can properly learn it. I can watch and listen to people do something over and over and over again, but I still wouldn't be able to do it by myself. I have to do it myself.

It depends what I'm learning but generally I learn best through conversation, discussing ideas even talking to myself helps.
