Learning Styles.
Throughout the years I always thought that it was just one way a person can learning. But after going to college and seeing that it is more than one way a person can learn; has me open to learning different learning styles. We all learn different so not two people are going to be the same and have the same learning pattern. How the economy is now, we all need to find a different learning style so we can get better jobs.

After answering the twenty-four question it stated that I am a Visual Learning (Bixler, 2010). To be honest I really do think that I am a visual learner. Once I see somebody do something twice I will go and do it just like they did it. But I will have to disagree with what it states for a visual learner, that “you learn from just looking at your study materials, use charts, maps, filmstrips, notes and flashcards (Bixler,…
