Learning methods Score: 4.5 September 14th, 2016 by findscore.com

I regard myself as a visual learner; therefore, reading or visualized materials work best for me.

I love reading and I formed the hobby since I was a kid, which I think contributes to my preference on visualized materials when it comes to learning. I find myself depend more on textbooks or handouts acquiring new knowledge rather than physically doing practices. I highlight the important contents and jot down notes, which helps me to understand or memorize things better. Afterward, I think it through to make sure that I remember all the essentials. If I leave out something, I retrieve the material and study again. By doing so, I learn new things better and quicker, and I can always go back to the texts or the books once I forget them.

On the other hand, I don't really get the hang of new skills by physically hands-on practices or listening to others because I get distracted very easily. When I do the practice, I always pay my attention to something that shouldn't bother me, like the clothes my partner wears. Same things happen to listening, as I often tune myself out in the middle of a lecture. These make me hard to learn efficiently. Also, I am under loads of pressure learning these way because it is less likely for me to get a chance to practice or listen to a lecture as many time as I feel like if I miss something. As a result, reading is my preferable way of learning.
