    Default learning styles and type

    Learning styles and type, are they completely unrelated?

    The main distinction I see in learing styles are:

    Visual (includes reading) v. auditory v. hands on learning

    Large group, small group, just you and the teacher, learning on your own

    on line class v. traditional class

    learn at your own pace v. guided learning (must stick to set schedule)

    My preference is visual and hands on and learning on my own. I do much better learning things by myself, working at my own pace. I did pretty good in school, but I think I would have learned much more if they just left me in the library by myself for the whole day. I am wondering if part of this is being introverted or maybe INTJ or maybe unconnected.

    I would be interested in hearing how other people learn best and if they think it relates to their type or not.

    They are absolutely related imo. I think it mostly has to alot to do with S vs N.

    Visual (includes reading) v. auditory v. hands on learning

    Well these both seem S oriented to me, I'd like to see a poll made or something to see what people prefer (and it would have to be an open poll so we could see their type).

    Large group, small group, just you and the teacher, learning on your own

    This one is easier, E vs I.

    on line class v. traditional class

    Hmm, this one is wierd. It could be either E vs I, or P vs J.

    learn at your own pace v. guided learning (must stick to set schedule)

    Definitely P vs J. Even in a guided scedule at school I go by my own pace.. due dates are flexible

    Well I prefer learning on my own, which I suppose has to do with introversion. As for visual, auditory, or hands-on, I'd say that I prefer visual the most and hands-on the least. In grade-school I used to hate hands-on experiments, and I believed that I was incapable of learning anything in such a manner. As to guided learning or learning at my own pace, I'd say that I overwhelmingly prefer the latter. That being said, I have come to realize the importance of guided learning because it promotes action and discipline.

    I only feel strongly about guided learning... I hate it. It demotivates me.

    Default may not make sense

    Semantic and scheduled. No homework. Very theoretical subject matter for lone voluntary learning.

    heavy visual with a slant towards hands-on. Aural is a total dead loss for me, as I forget what I'm told within minutes of being told it, most of the time. And learning on my own, at my own pace, though combined with some big group/small group stuff. IOW I like to do my learning and reading and stuff alone, then meet up with other people and talk about it, bounce ideas off them and stuff and that not only clarifies things and consolidates them in my head, but also allows me to get any stuff I might've missed.

    Just learning in classrooms with schedules though, drives me insane and I lose all motivation and invariably quit.

    For me:
    Auditory, small group, traditional, guided.

One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    highly visual (pictures/graphs, not words) for learning theoretical stuff, hands-on for learning practical stuff.

    Small group is best.

    Never taken an online class, but I doubt I'd learn much.

    I need guided learning and deadlines, because otherwise I don't have the motivation to sit down and actually learn, I just procrastinate forever.

    I'm not sure that any of this is type-related, though, at least for me.

    I'm exactly the same as Randomnity. While I'd like to answer that I'd prefer to learn at my own pace -- it just ain't going to work. Nothing would get done.

    That's why I chose guided, too.
