About This Quiz

Can we guess your learning style? Is it visual, verbal, aural or kinesthetic? This quiz is filled with 30 questions about how you learn various subjects. It doesn't matter if you're a slow or a fast learner, either, since everyone has their own unique style of learning. If we've sparked some curiosity in you, then it's time for you to take this personality quiz. 

There are four main types of learning styles that vary depending on the type of person. Some people learn the best when they are physically working on a task or moving around. This is known as kinesthetic learning. Other people prefer to sit at a desk and look at visual learning tools, such as graphs. This is called visual learning. There's also verbal learning, which is learning through communication, such as a discussion. And finally, there is aural learning, which is a fancy way of saying "learning through hearing." This type of learning involves listening to other people or having background music playing. But enough talk, it's time for us to match you to your learning style!
