This morning, I get known this kind of theory. It is quite interest with me. So I share here for you all.
People process the sensory data received by their brains in different ways. How you process the sensory data in your brain has a lot to do with how, and when, you focus best.
For example, with me, I do learn best if I have some visual, chart, illustrated to see and read.
I also do best if someone stay beside and tell me, discuss with me. But I can not learn from pratice. Dont tell me to try without saying any words.
So these kind of style divide into 3 groups: audio, visual or kinetic
If you are the Visual style: You are probably distracted by anything within your line of sight. But when you control what enters your line of sight, you also control your distractions. If you are visual, you probably can't take your eyes off the flickering of a television. Bad lighting annoys you. Clutter most likely distracts and irritates you. And if you have more than one project on your desk, you will have difficulty focusing on the project at hand. You do not work well facing windows, messes, or crowded rooms. But what you can't see won't distract you. So, when you do need to concentrate, control what you have in your line of sight, and you will find concentrating much easier.
If you tend to be audio. You cannot ignore sounds. If someone asks you a question, you are compelled to respond. When you go to bed, you lie awake-listening to the sound of your own thoughts and hearing every drippy sink for miles. Noise steals your focus and concentration. When you try to concentrate in a noisy space, you are driven to distraction. Libraries were made for you because once you control the sounds around you, you begin to control your focus. Earplugs, closed doors and white noise are your best defenses. By white noise, I mean any continuous sound that keeps your overly sensitive ears busy without distracting them-continuous being the key word because if there is a disruption in that noise, you will notice. Some examples of white noise are: a television with the volume at a faint mumble, the clatter and murmur of a local coffee shop, the trickling water of a fountain, an air conditioner's hum, low chanting, your own voice drowning out other noises and soft music with no lyrics. "No lyrics" is important because if audio people can hear words, they will start paying attention to those words. If you are audio, then once you begin to control the sounds around you, you will begin to expand your focus.
Finally, if you tend to be kinetic. Touch and smell are your dominant senses. Extremes in temperature, poor airflow, obnoxious smells and cramped quarters are your concentration sappers. Kinetic people benefit from controlling the space and smells around them. In fact, aromatherapy can actually aid a kinetic person's concentration by giving them something upon which to concentrate. Kinetic people also benefit from improved airflow, air conditioning and heating systems. They're the one type of person who must invest in comfortable desk furniture because unless kinetic people feel comfortable, they'll be unable to focus on the job at hand, and the investment in their comfort will be worth the expense. Kinetic people only really notice what enters their personal space, so if you want to hold a kinetic person's attention, you had better be within their arms reach. If you are kinetic, then controlling your personal space will expand your ability to focus.
Can you be all three types? Well, can people be ambidextrous? Of course! And the same holds true for audio, visual and kinetic people. However, most people do have one dominant sense, and they only notice the distractions to their other senses after their dominant sense has been distracted. I'm audio, for example, and the fact that my office is cramped, stuffy and cluttered only seems to affect my concentration when my neighbor is playing loud music. By and large, when people control the distractions to their dominant sense, the distractions to their other senses don't bother them so much.
Audio people tend to learn easily in a lecture format because they follow audio directions naturally. But kinetic people tend to learn best if the teacher is one-on-one and within their personal space, while visual people have to "be able to see it" to "learn ( from gigapedia forum)
