This was a very cool questionnaire, I loved reading about my learning styles!
As a teacher, I like to provide an outline, with detailed references for students, as well as having students explore applications for the content.
My learning style as RK sounds about right, for what I know and have challenged about myself. In nursing school, It helps to read a particular situation first, then visualize or perform the same situation. This helps the information become more concrete.
As a nursing student reading and application or demonstration of what I am reading makes sense to me.
I like summary, charts and simple diagrams or models. I cannot read a lot of writing for too long without a chart , summary, lists, tables, highlighted point or short explanation which I can picture with my eyes and my brain. I do mind reading, then demonstrate it in my own way, that is why I do not like distraction.

Being a medical student I noticed that I enjoy reading my textbooks but I hate highlighting and writing. I needed to adjust my study style to survive. I made digital flashcards based on what I read and start to answer those. Trial and error is the best learning technique for me.
I find it easier to study information that has diagrams, charts, pictures and writing that explains them. It is easy for me to associate a word or a phrase with a symbol or a diagram. When a tutor talks for longer than 5 or 10 minutes I find that my mind wanders and I start to draw. I also like to have a tutor explain written handouts and during this time I jot down ideas. I then go home and write them out neatly with different coloured pens to help me to remember and file the notes in order. I also struggle to read from textbooks. It is best for me to highlight main points and read them, then transfer them into my own words and re-read them.
