Styles of Learning- What is YOUR Style?

There are several styles of learning.  Everybody is wired different (no pun intended). So the way we intake information and process it is also different.  Some people learn best by trial and error, in a class setting, one on one or solo with books and software.  
 
We all learned the hard way in our industry trial by error isn't always the safest way to go.  When it comes to studying for our industry's exam it's best to avoid trial and error. Studying this way not only will it waste your time and money but it doesn't work.

3 Styles of Learning

Seminars are great for the guys who learn best in group settings. They have a visual, auditory or Kinesthetic learning style. 
 
visual learner learns best through what they see.  They learn best when they use graphical ways to represent what they are studying. They prefer it when information is in diagrams or graphs. 
 
The auditory learner learns best while they are listening. They much prefer to ingest information through audio or video clips, or by discussing a topic.  They don’t need to take down every single note but learn by listening. The Kinesthetic learner learns best when they are doing activities that involve participation.  In our live seminars, you get to practice with real-life psi exam test questions, so this is the best setting for you.
 
Software and home-study-programs are great preparation materials. This is for people who can take the time and effort to lock themselves in a room and get cracking.  The best type of learners is the “read & write” learners, (traditional studiers).  They are great at taking notes and learn best by reading their notes or the material from the books.
