How To Learn – Help For Kinesthetics

If you are struggling to learn a new subject, it might be because of your learning style. I cover this in detail in my study guide in detail, but one of our readers offers this great inspirational story that might help you.

Hi Marc,


I was helping Fred with his upcoming “electricity” exam last evening.

Fred is kinesthetic.. He loves stories- people’s experiences and all things sports.

He excels at and enjoys history, social studies as he lives the experiences of people from hundreds of years ago.

As you can guess… Fred was less than enthusiastic about electricity et al…

I helped him by making up a story about how RESISTANCE is just a bunch of tough guys in an electrical circuit, conductance is like a conductor of a bus bringing the volts to their “potential” and making a difference… and because it can be a long bus ride.. it’s important to keep the “INTENSITY” of the current high… etc…

He had already memorized the formulas and done the leg work.

He just needed to add meaning- a story – to what electricity is about.

It was pretty cool to see his physiology change right before my eyes. Ironically, with every new idea. I could see eyes LIGHT-UP – sorry couldn’t resist :)

He was excited, passionate and spent the next half hour telling me all about his plans for finishing this school year and what he will do differently next year !

Anyway, all this reminded me of an episode of WKRP, which I showed Fred, and thought you could use on your blog…

Have a Great Day !
Andrew
