Are you ready to take your meditation practice to the next level? As someone who has struggled with meditation in the past, I understand how difficult it can be to find the right technique that works for you.
You can adapt your meditation practice by targeting the sense that's most active in your daily life and memory. I created a quiz to help you figure which one that is.
1 When you need to learn something new, you prefer to:
a. Listen to a lecture or podcast.
b. Read about the topic.
c. Try it out and see how it works.
2 When you are trying to memorize information, you find it helpful to:
a. Repeat the information out loud.
b. Write the information down.
c. Create flashcards or diagrams to visualize the information.
3 When you are trying to solve a problem, you prefer to:
a. Talk through the problem with someone else.
b. Write down the steps you need to take.
c. Try different solutions and see what works.
4 When you are studying, you prefer to:
a. Listen to music or other background noise.
b. Use colors and highlighters to organize your notes.
c. Use flashcards or other hands-on materials.
5 When you are taking a test, you prefer to:
a. Close your eyes and try to visualize the information.
b. Read the questions out loud to yourself.
c. Write down the information to help you remember.
6 When you are trying to understand a new concept, you find it helpful to:
a. Draw or sketch it.
b. Listen to an explanation of it.
c. Touch or handle an object related to it.
For each question, give yourself a point for the answer that best describes you.
If most of your points are in A, you're probably an auditory learner.
If most of your points are in B, you're probably a visual learner.
If most of your points are in C, you're probably a tactile learner.
It's worth noting that it's not uncommon for people to have a combination of learning styles, and no one style is better than the other. With that being said, this quiz is only one way to get an idea of someone's learning style, and there are many other quizzes and assessments that also exist. Remember that you know yourself best, and should trust your gut feeling in identifying their own style.
Meditations are tagged according to learning style. Start with 5 minute meditations. Once you find one that you enjoy you can slowly work your way to 15 , 30 and even 60 minutes.
