Exploring learning styles:

Research has shown that the more we become aware of our own learning styles, the better we learn.

These web sites are offered in that spirit, but we cannot account for their validity. We recommend that any "profiles" offered should be taken to a professional academic counselor for validation.

Index of Learning Styles Questionnaire: (Felder/Silverman) introduction, learning preferences on four dimensions (active/reflective, sensing/intuitive, visual/verbal, and sequential/global); and a self-assessment instrument self-scored. Results/scores are based upon 44 questions.

The SuccessTypes Learning Style Type Indicator (Pelley) based on the Myers Briggs Type Indicators (Extraversion, Introversion, Sensing, Intuition, Thinking, Feeling, Judging, Perceiving) Introduction and links to related Myers Briggs type indicators. Results/scores are based upon 28 questions.
