Did you know that there are different learning styles? Your learning style is the method for how you best learn and retain information, and each person has their own style. Understanding what your learning style is can help you optimize your own learning experiences and put you in a better position to select the learning experiences that are better suited to your needs.

But how do you figure out your own learning style? The Learning Styles Questionnaire (LSQ) was developed by renowned learning specialists Peter Honey and Alan Mumford. The assessment identifies an individual's preference for using one of four learning styles: activist, reflector, theorist, or pragmatist.

How it works

The Learning Styles Questionnaire starts with an 80-item self-assessment that takes individuals approximately 30 minutes to complete. The result is a score containing the four learning styles, with the highest score being the individual's dominant learning style using a four-quadrant model.

Learning outcomes

By the end of this training session, participants will:  

  • Identify individual learning style preferences.
  • Increase the awareness of learning activities that are congruent with individual learning styles.
  • Learn how to maximize learning strengths.
  • Develop less dominant learning styles.
  • Balance the learning styles of groups.
  • Surface team learning difficulties.
  • Expand their learning style range.

Uses and applications

Surface team learning issues and help balance training methods to accommodate the different learning preferences in your group using the Learning Styles Questionnaire.

The LSQ is effective both as a stand-alone learning instrument and as part of a more comprehensive training program. You can use the LSQ to:

  • Balance the learning styles of groups.
  • Help trainers identify the dominant learning style of participants.
  • Surface team learning difficulties.
  • Help managers understand and motivate their employees.
  • Discuss the learning process.
  • Help participants expand their learning style range.

The accompanying workbook, Capitalizing on Your Learning Style, helps individuals make sense of their LSQ results. It shows individuals how to maximize their learning strengths, compensate for weaknesses, and develop their less dominant styles.
