Communication — the logical learning styles — Part 6

Learning Styles – Let’s think about it …

Learning styles have a lot of influence on the way people consume messages.  They also change the way individuals recall information, and even the words they choose.

The Logical (Mathematical) Learning Style

Those who possess the logical style like using your brain for logical and mathematical reasoning. They can recognize patterns easily, as well as connections between seemingly meaningless content.

Logical learners work well with numbers and can perform complex calculations. They remember the basics of trigonometry and algebra, and can do moderately complex calculations in their head.

These learners typically work through problems and issues in a systematic way, and like to create procedures for future use. They are happy setting numerical targets and budgets, and they track their progress towards these. Logical learners like creating agendas, itineraries, and to-do lists, and typically number and rank them before putting them into action.

Their scientific approach to thinking means they often support their points with logical examples or statistics. These learners pick up logic flaws in other peoples words, writing or actions, and may point these out to people.

They like working out strategies and using simulation. They may like games such as brainteasers, backgammon, and chess. They may also like PC games such as Dune II, Starcraft, Age of Empires, Sid Meier games and others.

Common Pursuits and Phrases

People with a strong logical style are likely to follow such pursuits as the sciences, mathematics, accounting, detective work, law and computer programming.

They are more likely to use phrases that reflect your most dominant style out of the visual, aural or physical styles, however they may also use phrases like these:

  • That’s logical.
  • Follow the process, procedure, or rules.
  • There’s no pattern to this.
  • Let’s make a list.
  • We can work it out.
  • Quantify it, or prove it!

Learning and techniques

Logical learners aim to understand the reasons behind your content and skills.  These types are hungry for statistics and other analysis to help you get your idea across.  Remember to highlight logical thoughts and behaviors.
