Default Learning Differences

Does anyone learn differently than normal, how do you learn, and how have you adapted to learning differently.

Iíll start, I learn better by listening and Mose effectively in structured step by step process and being told and shown hands on is best. Someone speaking fast freaks me out, well more on the phone when writing info down and do this often on the phone for work. Itís amazing how fast and un-intelligible people speak. Likely I have nonverbal learning disorder.

Default Re: Learning Differences

I seem to learn better visually and by reading than when someone is talking to me. I need more time to process what is being said than verbal talk allows. Keeping up with a person speaking (like in a classroom or on the phone) takes a lot of effort for me. So, I actually prefer email, messaging, books, pictures, and diagrams in learning.

I am not sure it is a disorder. I think people just have different strengths in how they process information.

Yes I believe that is like very true that people have different strengths in how they process things and I find it very interesting. In an ideal world schools would test all students for learning styles and strengths, then offer different types of classes for the various types of strengths.
