What type of learner are you? Visual? Auditory? Linguistic? Kinesthetic?
How do you prefer to receive information? Do you prefer to see information through visuals with images, illustrations and/or visual cues? Do you lean towards information that’s auditory, where you prefer to have someone explain information to you verbally or even listen to the content through a podcast? Are you linguistic, where you prefer to consume information through seeing the words, whether it’s on paper or a screen? You may be multi-modal and prefer more than one approach.
Receiving information in a way that matches your preferences can help you better understand how to act upon that information. We’ve created the Learning Preference Barometer, where you can answer a few short questions to help you determine your preferences. You can then communicate this with your health care team so you receive information in a way that you best understand. In addition, you can cut through the clutter and filter the resources you access in Prescription to Learn®, your Health GPS, by your learning preferences.
