    I considered myself a visual learner; the quiz shows that I am a Multimodal a mixture of Aural and Kinesthetic strategies (AK). This is accurate since I do like rewriting notes and listening to recordings of the notes. I also like watching recordings of the subject I am learning about in the moment several times until I feel like I understand the topic fully. I also discuss what I feel something means with my peers to compare with my understanding and get a broader understating of the topic.

    I am happy to know that I am not alone in my learning style. I worried when I started taking class online. I thought, will I be able to digest information without physical presentation of instructor where I can ask for help. Surprisingly, I love it because we discuss, provide feedback, sharing personal experiences. I am satisfied to find out the type of learning I prefer.

    AK preferences made sense to me. I found kinesthetic strategies to be complementary to my personality. I find discussions, talking, and questioning very rewarding. It totally makes sense that I enjoy podcasts and learn by listening and discussing.

    So, as a music teacher (and one that specializes in choral music/conducting) this makes SO MUCH SENSE! One of the things I struggle with as a music educator is finding inroads for students who experience music and music-making differently than I do.

    Reading what people with the AK like was really weird, it was very accurate. Reading the Aural preferences was almost too accurate.

    The concept that I have misunderstood the way I learn my whole life is just mind-blowing. As a Kinesthetic and Auditory Learner, I have always assumed my inattentiveness in class was ADD. Now I know that its mostly because power point is not my learning style. Thank heavens! This will change my life!

      That’s what I thought! I drift off when I watch a presentation with outlines of information. Even trying to take notes from the presentation is useless.

    I love doing things and learn from them. It’s so glad to know that I’m not the only one.

    • Dilubech Samil said:

      Yes. It’s good to know that we are not alone. I used to wonder how do people get all information in, when all they do is jot down few words when listening to lectures?

    AK preferences laid out all of the different learning styles i might have. This makes it easier for me to choose which learning style is best for me.

    I thought that Kinesthetic learning was my strength, however through the survey I discovered that audio was my highest at 10 points with Kinesthetic at 8 points.

      Same here. Now I realized that I confused myself when I take notes because, eventually I start writing sentences, worrying that I might miss everything from reading. Now I know that I am AK.
