Your overall learning style

 

Introduction
 

Your overall learning style is a composite of the various learning style factors you have identified by taking the learning style instruments. Each person is unique, so it is impossible to predict exactly how your learning style preferences interact and which factors will be more important than others to you. There are also important facets of you as a person and as a learner not identified by these learning style instruments. Nevertheless, certain learning style factors tend to co-occur more frequently than others. People who exhibit the classic correlations will exhibit markedly different overall learning styles.

 

On the other hand, you may very well not exhibit all the expected correlations. This is not a bad thing at all. It may mean that you are able to learn happily in a variety of ways and settings. Still it may be helpful to understand people with the more markedly different learning styles and how they learn best.

Common correlations
 

Here are some of the correlations that may occur to produce four very different overall learning styles. More detailed information about each type of learner follows.
