Visual Learners

Characteristics of Visual Learners

Visual learners learn best by seeing information. The following characteristics are typical of many individuals with strong visual processing skills:

1. Information presented in pictures, charts, or diagrams is easily remembered.

2. Visual learners have strong visualization skills. They can look up (often up to the left) an "see" the information invisibly written or drawn.

3. Visual learners can make "movies in their minds" of information they are reading. Their movies are often vivid and detailed.

4. Visual-spatial skills such as sizes, shapes, textures, angles, and three-dimensional depths are strong.

5. Visual learners often pay close attention to the body language of others (facial expressions, eyes, stance, etc.)

6. Visual learners have a keen awareness of the aesthetics, the beauty of the physical environment, visual media, or art.
