Traditionally, school present information in two through- language and through formulas involving numbers and logic. Psychologists, however, now say there’s a problem with this. People have differentstrengths and different learning styles to match these strengths. For example, one person might struggle with formation in a paragraph but understand it immediately in a diagram. Another person willstruggle with the diagram but not with the paragraph styles.

Linguistic: these people learn by using language-listening, reading, speaking and writing.

Logical: these people learn byapplying mathematical formulas and scientific principles.

Visual: these people learn by seeing what they are learning.

Musical: instead of finding music a distraction, these people learn wellwhen information is presented through music.

Kinesthetic: movement and physical activities help these people to learn.

Intrapersonal: these people have a good understanding of themselvesand can learn best if they can relate what they are learning directly to themselves.

Interpersonal: these people have a good understanding of others and learn well by working with others.

Ifschool present information all these ways, psychologists says, all students will benefit. Students who have a linguistic or a logical learning style will be able to develop new strengths. Studentwhit other learning styles will learn more and have more success in school- and possibly in life.
