Discover Your Learning Style
Knowing and understanding your learning style
Knowing your learning style is an important key to being successful both academically and professionally. There are eight universal learning styles. We will thoroughly examine each providing information, tips, and examples to help you discover your own, and optimize your potential both inside and outside the classroom.
Studying the Word of God is challenging for anyone, and not all of us are naturally studious. Your personal endeavor to study God’s word is praiseworthy, and it is also an investment that can yield enormous returns. So you want it to be worth your time and energy. Regardless of where you’re at on the study spectrum, you can make valuable progress. Whether you’re a stay-at-home mother, a student, or a retiree, this information on learning styles can help you sow your time wisely so you may reap the most out of your study. Being able to identify and understand your learning style is a fundamental key to successful study. It will help maximize your potential and eliminate unnecessary frustration. Not all of us learn the same, as God created each of us differently.
Bible study is hard for many because the manner in which we study it is primarily via an audio-visual or logical method. If your learning styles don’t fall into those categories, studying the Bible becomes more difficult, and creative methods need to be employed. Therefore, bible study is not the same for everyone. Here’s what is important to know: Jesus Christ is our Teacher. He disciples us intimately, and He will cater to your individual learning style with great care. That is why our personal walk with Christ is unique, being unlike that of anyone else.
Learning styles, as you will see, are definitely influenced by personality and temperament. Regardless of the personality model used, we all fall somewhere within that vast spectrum, being wholly unique individuals. As you will discover there may be points from each learning style with which you can identify or relate. However, the goal is to determine which style is dominant (primary), and which one is supportive (secondary).
The eight universal styles are: Visual, Auditory, Verbal, Kinesthetic, Logical, Creative — each which fall within the Social or Independent style. We all have a primary and secondary learning style. Be encouraged as we discuss each unique learning style offering tips and tools you can put to practical use. Depending on what you are learning, different styles may be implemented or employed. The objective is to determine your primary and secondary style, and whether or not your are independent or social, so you can begin to modify your means accordingly and glean the most from your investment of study.
Your PRIMARY learning style is dominant, being the one upon which you are dependent.
Your SECONDARY learning style is supportive, and is therefore used inter-dependently.
