3 learning styles

Updated: May 28, 2021

Did you know there are 3 learning styles and each of us has a preference?


Auditory leaners, learn by hearing and listening. You understand and remember things you have heard. You store information by the way it sounds, and you have an easier time understanding spoken instructions than written ones.


Visual learners, learn by reading or seeing pictures. You understand and remember things by sight. You can picture what you are learning in your head, and you learn best by using methods that are primarily visual.


A kinaesthetic learner is someone who needs to be actively engaged in their learning. They are 'tactile' learners who use movement, testing, trial and error and a non-traditional learning environment to retain and recall information.

Personally I'm an experiential learner, I need to be actively engaged. For me to truly process and remember something I need to experience it. I do however learn best when I have a visual demonstration prior to diving in and love auditory guidance.

Once I have experienced something I am able to move through it in my mind, imagining myself doing it, feeling it and experiencing it again. In a planning situation I am able to move through an experience, space, process in my mind and plan all that I see and interact within my imagined experience. I have a kinaesthetic experience in my mind that plays out like a movie that I'm a real life actor in.

When I work with people I intentionally cover all three learning styles. I explain (auditory), demonstrate (visual) and then you experience it for yourself (kinaesthetic), with my guidance and support.

Do you know how you learn best?
