You are at this page ‘Learning Styles – Understanding how you prefer to learn’ – because you have been asked to complete your learning styles questionnaire. We have asked you to identify your preferred style of learning because when you do, you can learn more, learn faster and learn easier. It’s a bit like signing your name with the wrong hand, if you were to learn in a style that is not your preferred one. Understanding your learning style is, we believe, an essential piece in your ‘Sticky Learning ®’ journey to getting more from your learning.

Our summary of learning styles below will help you understand them a little better:
They will try anything once. We met a Learner that related to this. He had never been skiing and on his first day, tried the black run – The most dangerous of slopes. He broke his leg! If an Activist were to start juggling, they would pick up the balls and just have a go.
They like to ‘look before they leap’. They are cautious to make up their minds and would rather observe, than lead. When they do make decisions, those decisions are soundly based. If a Reflector were to start juggling, they would want to watch someone else first.
They live in a ‘world of ideas’. Needing to get to the bottom of things before moving forward. Questioning the validity of statistics. If a Theorist were to start juggling they would want to understand how you start, what happens next, which hand does what, and so on.
They are also keen on ideas, but want to try them out to see if they work. Their aim is to understand how they can use the idea in the real world. If a Pragmatist were to start juggling they would want to work with someone, seeing how they do it whilst trying it themselves and also asking questions.
