I was not really that surprised by the results of my survey. The learning styles that I scored the highest in were all things that I am interested in. The two areas I scored highest in were linguistic and musical which goes along with the two things I like to do the most: singing and reading. These are things that I have always used in learning in high school and in college. Number 7 and Number 6 were also higher up on the list which I also think characterizes me in my schooling and in my life in general. I think being able to understand yourself and others is essential to being a teacher so I was happy that these were higher up on the scale than others. I literally do not care about math and science I wasn't surprised that they were lower on the scale. They were never my favorites in school and they never came easily to me. I'm glad that at least the ones I am not strong in are things that will not necessarily hurt me in the future.
