This learning style divides the different ways people learn into ‘intelligences’ and suggests that people are prone to one or two ways of learning:

  • Logical-Mathematical – ability to detect patterns, reason deductively and think logically.
  • Linguistic – ability to effectively manipulate language to express oneself rhetorically or poetically.
  • Visual Spatial – ability to manipulate and create mental images in order to solve problems.
  • Musical – ability to recognize and compose musical pitches, tones, and rhythms.
  • Bodily-Kinaesthetic – ability to use the body in differentiated ways to aid memory.
  • Interpersonal – ability to understand the feelings and intentions of others.
  • Intrapersonal – the ability to understand one’s own feelings and motivations.
  • Naturalist – responding to the natural environment.
