This improves the speed and quality of their own learning. Furthermore, one can develop the ability to learn with less dominate styles, as well as further develop styles they already use well. <br />The Memletics Learning Styles Inventory provides a questionnaire for seven particular learning styles. By asking a series of questions, and then scoring the results, it indicates where your dominant and secondary learning styles are. <br />
  21. 21. Reasoning & Why I Chose? <br />The Memletics Accelerated Learning System recognizes that each person prefers different learning styles and techniques. Learning styles group common ways that people learn. <br />Everyone has a mix of learning styles. Some people may find that they have a dominant style of learning, with far less of other styles. Others may find that they use different styles in different circumstances. <br />There is no right mix. Nor is your style fixed. You can develop ability in less dominant styles, as well as further develop styles that you already use as well.<br />Learning Styles Inventory<br />
  22. 22. Goal<br /><ul><li>It provides an integrated learning style.
  23. 23. It gives a clear structure and specific steps to help one achieve top mental fitness and highly effective learning practices from using their dominant learning style.
  24. 24. It recognizes the brain's natural abilities and uses effectively. The brain has an immense capability for learning, and Memletics helps a person use more of their unused capability.
  25. 25. It recognizes both a physical and mental perspective with learning styles. With some knowledge of what positively and negatively affects the brain.
  26. 26. It helps recognize learning styles using new technology to enhance learning. There are valuable and affordable tools now available that can significantly improve learning styles and memory.</li></li></ul><li>Defining Seven Learning Styles<br />1<br />7<br />6<br />Prefers using words, both in speech and writing.<br />Verbal<br />Prefers to work alone and use self-study.<br />Prefers using sound and music.<br />Logical<br />Aural<br />Solitary<br />Prefers using logic, reasoning and systems.<br />Prefers using their body, hands, and sense of touch.<br />2<br />Visual<br />5<br />Physical<br />(Kinesthetic)<br />Social<br />Prefers using pictures, images, and spatial understanding.<br />Prefers to learn in groups or with other people.<br />3<br />4<br />
