Learning Styles

A learning style refers to the way we prefer to get information from our environment. Nobody is exclusively one way or another, but many of us do have strong preferences. Understanding this can help us make adjustments if information is presented in a way that is different from our predominant style.

Cognitive Styles

A cognitive style refers to the way we are hard-wired biologically to respond to different kinds of environmental stimuli.  For example, biologically insensitive people need more stimulation in order to feel engaged.  A biologically sensitive person may become easily overwhelmed if there is too much stimulation.  These are important considerations because knowing your style can help you prepare for a class, job, vacation, etc., that may tax your coping skills.
