Our learning style therefore corresponds to the major trends with our most used strategies. But, of course, the existence of a statistical average does not preclude deviations, or in other words, that someone may be generally very visual, holistic and thoughtful does not prevent, however, auditory strategies which can be used in many cases and for task specific. We noted also. our learning style influenced by many different factors but one of the most influential is related to the way in which we select and represent information. All of us are receiving every moment and through our senses a huge amount of information from the world that surrounds us. Our brain selects part of that information and ignores the rest. If, for example, after an excursion ask you a group of tourists that they describe some of each of them will places that probably visited talk about different things, because each of them will be fixed on different things.
Don’t remember everything that happens, but part of what happens around. Select the information to which we pay attention depending on your interest, naturally. It is easier to remember the day of our wedding that on any given day. But it also influences him as we receive information. Some of us tend to look more at the information that we receive visually, others in the information they receive aurally and others that receive through the other senses has written and commented further that one of the theories more exciting and better informed of those that appeared in recent years is the theory of multiple intelligences by Howard Gardner.
Gardner defines intelligence as the set of capabilities that allows us to solve problems or make valuable products in our culture. Gardner defines 8 major types of intelligences, or capabilities According to the context of production (intelligence linguistic intelligence, logical-mathematical intelligence, bodily kinesthetic, musical intelligence, spatial intelligence, naturalist intelligence, interpersonal intelligence, and intrapersonal intelligence). All develop the eight intelligences, but each of them in different grade. Although part of the common ground that not all learn in the same way, Gardner rejects the concept of learning styles and says that the way to learn from the same individual can vary from an intelligence to another, in such way that an individual can have, for example, a logical holistic intelligence perception mathematical and sequential when working with musical intelligence. Gardner understands (and rejects) the notion of learning as something immutable and fixed for each individual styles. But if we understand learning style as the global tendencies of an individual when learning and if we assume that these global trends are not something fixed and immutable, but they are in continuous evolution, we see that there is no real comparison between the theory of multiple intelligences and learning styles theories. Ultimately, Howard Gardner emphasizes the fact that all the intelligences are equally important. The problem is that our school system not treats them equally and has enthroned the first two of the list, (logical mathematics and intelligence linguistic intelligence) to the point of denying the existence of the other.
