The following is a post titled "Learning Styles" from Amber Donovan in my PIDP 3250 course.  
"I found a quick "quiz" on determining your learning style.  A lot of you will probably already know what way you learn best. 
Feel free to take the quiz by following the link below and share with us!  Also note, there are MANY of these quiz websites out there this is just one example
This site classifies into only three styles; Auditory, Visual and Tactile
I am an auditory learner according to the quiz and after reading the descriptions I would agree.
Why is important or beneficial for us as educators to understand our student's learning styles and what kind of barriers do we face when dealing with a learning style diversity in our students?
“The more thoroughly instructors understand the differences, the better chance they have of meeting the diverse learning needs of all of their students” (“Understanding Student Differences,” Journal of Engineering Education 94 [2005]: 57).
This quote was posted on the following website:
I find this to be a valuable resource as it highlights the VARK model as well as Kolb’s Experiential Learning Cycle
What are your thoughts and responses to the questions I have posted in bold?"
I took the quiz and found that I am a visual learner which seems to align with previous quizzes that I have done regarding learning styles.  I found the cartoon below to be accurate representation of a visual learner.
