Transcript of Learning Styles

Which learning style do you think you are?
Your learning styles have more influence than you may realize. Your preferred styles guide the way you learn. They also change the way you internally represent experiences, the way you recall information, and even the words you choose.
Research shows that each learning style uses different parts of the brain. By involving more of the brain during learning, we remember more of what we learn.

Malcolm S. Knowles

Knowles popularized the concept of “andragogy.” He was a leader in adult learning and an advocate for expanding adult education to adult learning which encompassed andragogy as a theory for the process of teaching adults.
Is a psychometric questionnaire designed to measure psychological preferences in how people perceive the world and make decisions. The original developers of the personality inventory were Katharine Cook Briggs and her daughter, Isabel Briggs Myers.
These preferences were extrapolated from the typological theories proposed by Carl Gustav Jung. Jung theorized that there are four principal psychological functions by which we experience the world: sensation, intuition, feeling, and thinking. One of these four psychological functions are dominant most of the time.

How does Myers-Briggs differ from other tests?
There are no right or wrong answers and one type is not better than any other type. The purpose of the indicator is not to evaluate mental health or offer any type of diagnosis.

Also, unlike many other types of psychological evaluations, your test results are not compared against any norms. Instead of looking at your score in comparison to the results of other people, the goal of the instrument is to simply offer further information about your own unique personality. The MBTI meets accepted standards of reliability and validity.
