Our learning style is directly related to the strategies we use to learn something. A way to understand it would be to think about our learning style as the statistical mean of all the different strategies we use. Therefore, our learning style corresponds to our long-term tendencies and our most-used strategies. But naturally, the existence of a statistical mean doesn’t preclude deviations, or, said in other words, just because someone is generally really visual, holistic and reflexive, it doesn’t mean he can’t use auditory strategies in many cases and in concrete tasks.
