Adapt Your Studying Techniques to Your Learning Style
Written by Dee Kumar, June 22, 2021
Transitioning to a brand new way of studying is sometimes just as hard as the classes you take. You might be jumping from High School to college, which entails learning how to study more in-depth subjects with a lot of extra work.

You might also have gone on hiatus, then decided to go back to school or try real estate courses. Either way, changing study techniques may come as a shock to you at first.
That is because moving up to different levels of education requires changing the way you study. Here is how you can adapt your studying techniques to your learning style.
Auditory Learner Characteristics
If you are an auditory learner, then you like to talk a lot. Not only that, but you enjoy listening to others speak as well.

Even if the whole time you are waiting for your chance to jump into the conversation. You often remember the exact contents of a lecture or chat with a friend.

• Talking to yourself
• Distracted by sound
• Like reading stories with a lot of dialogs
• Extroverted
• Likes to sing
• Listens to music
• Pro at remembering names
• Forgets faces easily
• Whisper or mouths words as you read

If this sounds like you, then you might be an auditory learner. That is especially true if you recite your notes or subject matter out loud to ingrain it in your brain.
How Auditory Learners Can Adapt
The best auditory study tip is to record all of your lectures so you can run them back later on. A tape recorder is a great tool, but your phone works just as well. That is one of the best tips for auditory learners because they can go over and listen to their professor as many times as they want.

On that same note, you can look up podcasts that focus on your class's subject matter. Find an episode that pertains to what you are learning, sit back, and listen!

Some other examples of auditory study methods are:

• Use rhyming techniques
• Read aloud
• Break words up by syllables
• Talk to yourself
• Paraphrase the content to yourself
• Talk to a friend or a classmate about the study material
• Talk yourself through problems

When you drive, you can also play your recordings over the car speaker. So long as you pay attention to the road, this method works great because you are in a small space with minimal distraction.
Visual Learner Characteristics
Visual learners remember details like colors and faces. And when giving directions, they may state objects and buildings over cardinal directions and streets.

Many times, they become impatient when people talk, especially with seminars. Perhaps the most poignant aspect is their ability to recall information written or exhibited visually.

Some other aspects are:

• Good at spelling
• Better with diagrams or charts
• Organized and plans ahead
• Quiet and keeps to themselves
• Keen attention to detail

Visual learners are also very concentrated people. Though their minds wander during lectures, they stay focused while reading.
How Visual Learners Can Adapt
Visual learners are often obsessed with taking notes. So, be sure to record everything you think is critical to remember. The one flaw here is that sometimes everything sounds like important info.

When this happens, take a moment to assess whether every sentence needs memorization or not. Pick through the details to find the meat of the content. That way, you don't end up copying the whole book or lecture. On the subject of note-taking, you should also make copious amounts of flashcards. These handy tools are a visual learner's best friend. 

Write down vocabulary, definitions, and anything else you need help remembering. The best thing about flashcards is their portability. You can whip them out whenever you have free time and do a quick study session.

Some other tips include:
• Video recording lectures
• Use mind maps
• Take photos
• Use notebooks
• Focus on the teacher's face
• Use mnemonics
• Use a colored highlighter, pen, pencil, etc.

You can also look up YouTube videos. These are great because videos focus on visuals. So, while they teach, diagrams and pictures fill the screen.
Kinesthetic Learner Characteristics
Kinesthetic learners deal with their hands. That means they have to touch everything and use hand gestures while they talk.

Instead of focusing on someone talking or what is happening visually, they concern themselves with actions. These learners rely on a demonstration for learning.

Other signs of kinesthetic learning are:

• Inability to sit still
• Dislike reading
• Terrible at spelling
• Problem-solve with action
• Will try out new things

These learners would also prefer to go out and do things. So, instead of reading about real estate, they can't wait to go out and start selling houses instead.
How Kinesthetic Learners Can Adapt
Hands-on studying may sound strange, but it happens all the time without us realizing it. If you learn best this way, then take a walk while you process new information.

The mere movement will help get your brain working. Another tip is to narrate to yourself what you are doing. So, if you are solving a formula, talk yourself through the problem as you do it.

Some other tools to use are:

• Stretching
• Moving while you study
• Write words in the air with your finger
• Re-write information multiple times
• Repeat motions
• Write on a whiteboard

Taking online classes may be a challenge for kinesthetic learners. One way to get around the lack of hands-on learning is to buy a corkboard and some flashcards.

You can write your information on the cards and create a map of the material as it connects. That way, you aren't sitting idle for too long.
