So long story short a couple of mental health professionals over the years have told me they are pretty confident I'm a kinesthetic learner (as opposed to visual or auditory - so my brain processes actions much better than visual or auditory signals, meaning if you give me something to put together by hand I can then do it blindfolded, but if you ask me to repeat what someone just said or something I just read you will be disappointed). I've had a read and tend to agree (though that could just be confirmation bias), especially as my co-workers make fun of me for quirks which are indicators of a kinesthetic mind.
My issue is, assuming of course that I am a K learner, is that I don't know how to fit it to our type of learning - i.e. academia. I don't see how I can incorporate a physical act into my learning process, as finance is very hands off (beyond typing).
Just wondered if anyone has tried to use K learning in accountancy/tax/finance and how they go about it. 'Amusingly' I've ended up in a very unsuitable career for my learning style... Apparently the worst thing you can be is sat at a desk doing purely mental activities :|
Oh, and I got through my exams by reading the book a couple of times then doing nothing but questions, which isn't practical outside an exam setting.
