A perceptual style is a way that a learner prefers to get information:(a) auditory-by listening, (b) visual-by seeing, (c) kinesthetic-by moving or doing, (d) tactile-by touching. Different people have different perceptual styles.
A perceptual style reflects peoples preferences for processing sensory information. Some people prefer to use auditory perception, others to use the visual system. These basic differences between people are thought by some to be related to learning styles.
