Yes, I am a visual learner and thinker as well.

I'm also a visual learner and I'm also HFA.

Visual learner here too. Everything I know is associated with an image, even the days of the week have an image attached to them (moday is a half moon, tuesday is a bugger, wednesday a mosquito, etc, don't ask why, I don't know).

It's a good era to live in, as everything seems to be going more visual each day thanks to technology.

We are all different but I am extremely visual and I have a lot of difficulty learning from a lecture or a book, I have to go through the motions.

I don't really understand a topic until I am solving problems and I can visualise the problem and the solutions. I have also discovered that many people can't do this as well as I can. I am able to visualise heat transfer, fluid flows and complex mechanics problems with much less difficulty than most of my peers. There were some topics I've studied that were impossible for me to visualise. I can calculate the second moment of inertia for pretty much any shape but I can't tell you what it means because I can’t see it in my head. Luckily I studied engineering and managed to muddle through these issues with the ninja like mathematics skills I developed solving so many visual problems.

Hey this is me!!
Have no patience for books, except if they are accompanied by pictures and lectures and auditory information just give me a headache.
Also I can visualise magnetic fields and electical current transference, along with fluidic currents( have a natural obsession with rivers and the eddys they produce)
Always thought I was alone in that!! ! Awesome :D

I'm a pretty good visual learner, and extremely horrible at verbal learning.

I haven't mastered the maths skills you guys have yet, but the process both of you describe is me to a 't'.

I don't know. I can learn easily in Verbal and visual I can visualize a problem but not as any specific thing I just stare into space.

Reading this today made me think of three dimensional magnetic fields interacting and turbulent fluid flows. Thinking visually made my head get quiet and my heart rate dropped.

Huh....About two months or so ago, I stopped being able to do that 'zone out thing' due to stress. It's just beginning to come back in fits and starts. But it is when I am visually solving things. My stress really started to get exponentially bad when I couldn't do that anymore.

Now that it is coming back, It does relax me. I didn't put two and two together until I saw your post.

I've been trying to learn Spanish for months, really struggling as its a dvd(auditory) The course is a short one and have hardly picked anything up. Could I be a visual learner? How can I tell?

For me, it's an auditory thing. I am sure there are other issues too. But I know the vocal processing and other auditory issues are part of the problem.

I am a very visual learner. If I can visualize verbal information, it becomes so much easier for me to learn. In grad school, we had to pass a certain number of cume exams to move on to the next stage. Unfortunately, we often did not know what the topic of the exam was until the week of the exam. That meant being able to read, comprehend, memorize and be able to replicate the information from usually 300-500 pages of journal research article pages within that time frame. I passed all of the ones that I could visualize the concepts for, which was enough to move on to the next step towards the PhD. The ones I failed were topics that I had a hard time visualizing for some reason or another.

As far as I understood it, science debunked learning styles. I kinda think its bull sh**. We use all of our senses all the time, focusing more on certain senses depending on the situation (taste for eating, sound for music/listening, etc.).

Criticism on wikipedia.

Wow, well done! The not knowing what, and only having a week would have sunk me.

How do you manage to visually learn from 300-500 pages research journal articles though? I find they are usually written in a way that I can’t focus on without great effort. Not easy to visualize.
