I come into lecture, and I wonder what I am doing in there most of the time. As soon as I walk through that door to leave class, everything leaves my brain. The lecturer talks and shows examples, but I cannot understand.

I recently learned that I am a kinesthetic and visual learner. The lectures were all about text and auditory. The professor talks and shows text on a powerpoint slide. No wonder I didn't understand. So, yeah, lectures are useless for me. And there is a good reason.

I just ignore the professor, read the book, and draw in class. I encourage everyone to take this test to see what type of learner they are. From what I know, many Aspies are visual and "think in pictures". College usually doesn't have many visual aides, and I now know why college has been harder for me.

Take the following Questionaire (no right or wrong answers here. Just be honest). It will tell you what type you are and even give you study tips so you can be successful and learn efficiently:

The VARK Questionnaire Results

Your scores were:

Visual: 5
Aural: 4
Read/Write: 2
Kinesthetic: 8

You have a mild Kinesthetic learning preference.

I've always learned best through an engaging teacher, and writing everything I need to know down. Though that can be a single sentence to describe a half hour's lecture, I'd remember 99.9% of what was covered.

Makes sense. I tend to do best visually. If I want to learn something new I watch 'how to' videos. Lectures usually go in one ear and out the other. I did best at a technical college because it was mostly hands on. Unlike a university where it was mostly lectures.

I guess I'm the odd one...

V--3
A--11
R--3
k--14

Seems pretty accurate to me. I learn best by listening and doing.

I can deal with reading lots of text, but I have to annotate/summarize immediately and then read my annotations/notes aloud when I study.

I got even scores on every test I've taken. It's been something like 1/3 visual, 1/3 audio, 1/3 that other thing. I've always found that I work best if I both see and hear something. I never want to try anything until I'm sure I'll get it perfectly.

I seem to be a visual learner; with an aural tendency. Interesting paradox....
