What is your learning style?

9 replies
I've been reading and reading, and trying out things... I tend to prefer video in a step-by-step basis , but I figured that it drains out critical thinking -- which is essential in marketing?

What are your methods?

I'm more of a kinesthetic-visual learner I guess.

    I prefer learning by doing.
    Other than that I like reading ebooks.

    Well .. I like watching videos if they're good, especially when there's support material that I can go through at the same time.

    But my absolutely top way of learning (and this helps me learn much much faster) is going over the top to help other people with their problem, even if I have to research the answers using Google/Wikipedia/Blogs/Articles/a book.

    This method of learning has given me really an unfair advantage to learn ultra fast and get what I learn to stick for a long time.

    I even got a medal from the president of my country for excellence in studying after I finished school. Trust me - this works.

    PS. I almost never did any homework.

    Reading is my favorite method. But I'd appreciate it more when the text is rich with useful screenshots, like step by step ones.
    Videos, I don't know. Sometimes I feel like I'm wasting my time watching them. But it's just me and it may be because I'm a fast reader.

    Hmm... i LOVE ebooks too... They're really good because they don't "drag along" your time and you can scan it for nuggets, or just speed-read them.

    But videos - you get to fast-forward them as well... But there's something unnerving about having to wait for someone talking to finish everything he's said.

    Maybe it's because i'm not much of an auditory learner?

      For me I open myself up to various channels when it comes to picking up new knowledge and I try to experiment things that I learn by either applying them directly to my business or by teaching others about the things I learned.

        That wasn't very specific...

        How about specifying more? Like, what do you mean by *Various* channels?

    Only read what's relevant with my current problem, dig it really deeply ==> sort the priority according to the money required to spent/time ==> do it ==> tweak ==> if there's a question then re-learn/ re-read

    I personally don't like "take massive action". Action must only come after a series of calculation and preparation....Or you'll waste money and time.

      Woah, your style of implementation is very similar to mine. I tend to dabble a lot over analysis, and in the end get paralysed, because my initial plans tend to bloat up by a huge extent.

      Sorting sucks a GREAT deal of time as well... Do you have any resources or methods that help you with prioritizing? I'd love to know
