Yes, this is completely me, especially having to say somethings over and over my way to understand them.

I was completely surprised at these results. I am definitely “aural” “in all things” and I completely identify with “all “of the above comments. Thank You
I don’t easily forget what I hear from people and I benefit so much from the discussion. Through discussion, I am able to understand people’s different opinions.
I notice that I do lean to aural but also I have a very active brain that is always distracting me so that can prevent me from hearing the things I need to learn.
I found a weird trick. for this! I noticed that my attention was always being pulled to other sensory things so I used my energy to “Neutralize” distractions. I don’t even focus on what is being said necessarily I just zone in and get my surroundings under control.
I’m aware this is a super individual experience and I’m not giving great direct instruction. But feel free to reply with how this works for you and I will see if I can re-explain it.
When I teach someone something I can never forget it, once we argue about something I can never forget it, participating in class and asking questions and engaging in debates engraved the info in my brain.
I usually can never focus when I am in class. I get distracted and bored easy.
I usually cannot focus on voices. Other things distract me. I would need to listen more than once.
I usually cannot focus on videos.other thinks distract me. I would need to listen more than once.
Me too, always rewinding when I rewinded excessively when listening to online lectures
I find myself drifting in and out of lectures and missing the point. I’ve found that teachers’voices more than anything help me concentrate or not.
