Stat of the Week: Auditory Learners
If you read our blog regularly (and maybe even if you don’t), you already know about the three common learning styles: visual, auditory, and kinesthetic. Last week, we took a gander at the first the group—the visual learners—and peered into some of the ways companies can engage roughly 65% of their workforces through graphical means.
This week, I’d like to introduce you to auditory learning. If you can’t get enough podcasts, use rhymes to help yourself remember things, love talking to people on the phone, or find yourself mouthing or whispering these words to yourself, you might be an auditory learner.
Auditory learners tend to engage best with what they can listen to, which means they may prefer discussions, lectures, and audio recordings over visual information. They may also love music, foreign languages, and long walks on the beach—if only to hear the sounds of the waves or the sand crunching, crackling, and crinkling beneath their toes.
Join us again here next week, when we’ll turn off the projector, take out our headphones, and experience what it means to learn kinesthetically.
