The Sensory Preferences Inventory



The Sensory Preferences Inventory examines and reports your learning style in terms of the three primary senses you use for processing information:

  • Visual (uses eyes to see objects, pictures, or written forms)
  • Auditory (uses ears to hear and mouth to speak)
  • Tactile (uses hands to touch, to handle, or to do things)

The Sensory Preferences Inventory consists of 24 preference statements. You indicate how well each statement describes you by responding with one of the following:

  • Almost always
  • Usually
  • Sometimes
  • Seldom
  • Almost never

Result: Your responses are scored and reported for each sense category. Degrees of Sense preference are as follows:

  • Very strong
  • Strong
  • Moderate
  • Slight
  • No

The program records the sensory preference results associated with your name for your future reference.
