From Ben Ambridge’s TED talk about debunking psychology myths:
Learning styles are made up and are not supported by scientific evidence. It’s obvious that the best presentation format depends not on you, but on what you’re trying to learn. Could you learn to drive a car, for example, just by listening to someone telling you what to do with no kinesthetic experience? Could you solve simultaneous equations by talking them through in your head and without writing them down? Could you revise for your architecture exams using interpretive dance if you’re a kinesthetic learner? No. What you need to do is match the material to be learned to the presentation format, not you.
