Know your learning styles to improve your study

We all understand that people learn in different ways but that does not mean we all know what is the best way we should learn.

Here we will look at some of the different styles and ways to help you understand everything that you need for your study.

Ok let’s start with personality, are you an introvert or an extravert?

It is rare that you will be right on the extreme end of one, but you will definitely lean to one more that the other.

Knowing if you are an introvert or extrovertone can help you prepare for good study habits and ways of learning.

Introverts are those that draw their energy from quite time and personal development. You like time to think and evaluate options before making a decision and speaking. You prefer to learn new material by yourself and then evaluate it.

Sounds like you, perfect, go celebrate with a coffee and some quiet time.

If you are thinking this is nothing like me you are most likely more of an extrovert.

Extroverts on the other hand thrive on socialising and public situations. You will enjoy group discussions and evaluating options with other people. You have more energy in social and group situations and brainstorming is a great way to discuss new topics and information.

Are you more like this option? Yes? Great! Go grab a few friends and celebrate together.

Now that we have that sorted remember to find study options that suit you, lets be honest you are going to be studying in some form or another for a while, so best to get good at it now.

Another tip to help your learning and studying is to see what sensory styles suit you best for learning. This is called the VARK test.

These are:

  • Visual learner – as it says you learn best reading and taking things in visually
  • Auditory learner – for this style you learn best by listening, podcast and lectures are a good way to go.
  • Read/Writer learner – you love to read your information, so go grab that test book or information booklet.
  • Kinaesthetic learner – you are a hands on learner, so get out there and touch, try and experience.

There are plenty of free online tests out there to help you decide so find one and have a go, you may just be surprised.
