Learners and their Learning Style

Here is a consolidated list of Learning Styles and their respective Learners;

7 different types of Learning Styles

When people identify the learning style that suits them best, they tend to stick with it. However, research has shown that the most effective study comes from blending different learning styles together.


Visual learners do well when they use symbols, boxes, charts and colours in their notes. If you find that you learn better by reading and looking at pictures, diagrams and graphs, etc. the chances are you are a visual learner.


Techniques used by verbal learner are reciting information out loud, writing your own notes and highlighting the key points. Having a passion for words, writing, and rhymes indicates that you prefer verbal learning style.


Aural learning involves using sound and music. Auditory learners develop understanding and memory by hearing and listening. If you find it easier to understand spoken instructions rather than reading, aural learning will benefit you.


Physical learning involves using your body and sense of touch to learn. Physical learners learn by doing, touching, moving, building, and are described as a hands-on. If you find it difficult to sit still for long periods of time, chances are you’re a physical learner.


Logical learners often learn by asking a lot of questions. Logical learners want to understand the whole picture. They are natural thinkers who learn by classifying, categorizing and thinking abstractly about patterns and relationships, etc.


Social learners prefer to learn in groups rather than on their own and like generating ideas by brainstorming with others. If you like taking part in group sports and prefer social activities than doing things on your own, you may be a social learner.


Solitary learners tend to be more independent and introspective, spending a lot of time on their own, enjoying their own company. If you enjoy spending time alone, keeping a journal and engaging in self­ analysis to gain a deeper understanding of yourself, you may be a solitary learner.
