The higher scores on the learning styles format questionnaire suggest this is an area of preference. All of us use all of the styles to a greater or lesser extent, using your profile you can better identify learning methodologies suited to your preferences. For descriptions on the four preferences see our other pages:

While this simple (unscientific) instrument can be a useful discussion tool, we would highly recommend using Honey and Mumford’s LSQ instrument, this questionnaire contains 80, well researched questions and effective analysis. www.peterhoney.com

  3. Whilst it’s true that Learning Styles are an interesting conversation starter, readers might like to check this summary of research on Learning Styles – including links to the Coffield Report with research into scores of Learning Styles inventories – http://www.bfchirpy.com/2009/11/learning-styles-fable-ous-and-tragic.html

    • Hi Simon
      Thanks for your comment.

      What most people overlook in the hype to support/ undermine any ‘learning styles’ theory is the value to those developing learning materials and delivering training.
      Whilst I cannot disagree with the majority of the comments made, or indeed from Clive Sheperd’s original post http://clive-shepherd.blogspot.com/2008/08/learning-styles-don-exist.html , the value is to those designing training. It is easy to be bound by our own “personality” and preference for data, using any of the “learning Styles” models at least forces the designer to look at things from different perspectives than their own. If it provides a vehicle for that then as far as I am concerned it has added value.
      Anyone using a simple questionnaire to identify needs, and to focus a persons development on that niche has missed the point.

      Sure learning styles have been hyped (way too much) but any competent practitioner knew that without the (expensive) research!
      Mike
