Post #3 Learning Styles/False Memories

In the lecture about Learning styles/false memories, we get to learn the different types of ways that people learn. I tend to be a better visual and kinesthetic learner. I remember thing more when I can see the way they are done. When I read or listen to something, I get very confused and do not understand the material as well as I could. For example, when I am going somewhere I do better as the diver. Most of the times when I do a route one or two times, I will remember it completely without directions. In the lecture are also learned about false memories. I believe that this happens often. A personal example would be when I am telling a story with my sister to our family and I mixed up the order of event and my sister will remind me of the way it actually happened. I tend to remember everything that happened, but I mix up the order of how it happened.

  1. Deirdre,
    I am the same way with driving, I can almost always get back somewhere even just the next time I'm trying to. I think a lot has to do with the fact that I don't actually follow street names, I follow landmarks and eventually it just becomes second nature. I prefer hands on learning and visual learning which is why I love the physical sciences where anything I learn can be put right into practice.
