Watching stuff, experiencing stuff, hearing stuff, or reading stuff

What is easiest for you to remember to what is hardest.

For me easiest is What I watch, then experience, then read, then hear.

experience, watch, read and hear.

though it depends on how interested i am. like i can remember more of what i read if i'm really interested. i barely remember what i hear. if i want to remember it i have to write it down.

Easiest----> hardest
Experiencing, reading, watching, hearing, unless it's music, in which case the order is
Experiencing, hearing, reading, watching.

Yeah I can remember things ive watched one time but when I read I can remember the overall picture but after a day not totally what happened in a certain part. And when im hearing like movies I have to watch the movie over and over to remember what they said in that scene.

It's easiest for me to remember something I've experienced myself, and I count writing things down (as opposed to simply reading them) as 'experience'. Then comes reading, watching, and then hearing/listening. I try to pay attention when listening to people trying to tell me something, and it's not like I'll forget most of it, but'more will stick with me when I read or experience it.

I probably read "Treasure Island" when I was ten and haven't read it since.

I can remember the plot of the book far better than I can remember my tenth birthday.

Experience as in.. like, feeling and moving in an environment, sort of? I guess that might be the top one for me. Actually, hearing and watching are pretty close, too. (maybe hearing before watching) Reading is far in the back, LOL. I love to read and all, but it just doesn't usually stick nearly as well as anything else, and even if I remember it, I'm usually unsure if I remember it correctly.

Experience meaning I remember certain things from long ago on trips? That kind of experience.

I think all equal in different situations for me.

On the spot, I remember tastes easily, I remember smells easily, I remember some things I only saw easily, I remember some things I only heard easily, I remember touch easily and also motor-stuff.

I like to listen to lectures best sometimes.

Sometimes though, I like to see things.

Sometines I need to try things myself.

Generally I learn as easy in a lecture as during a do-it-yourself lesson and as easy in from visual material.

I can't report that I learn better from visual material than from a lecture.

Easy-Hard
Feeling, seeing, hearing, thinking, smelling/tasting

I can especially remember what things feel like when they're touching my back or upper arms.

Have we found for most of us that reading is one of the toughest. My mom says is might be that way because we are much more visual like I remember faces much more than those dang names.
