|People learn and develop in different ways and in different directions.
Learning is a process that involves perceiving and processing information. It is a process of taking in information, making judgements based on the information and acting on those judgements. Moreover, Learning is a complex neurological experience. As yet, we cannot detect why or how learning occurs or to what it can be attributedbut underlying, are theoretical concepts such as:
A learning style, is a preferred way of perceiving and processing experiences - of interacting with the world. Moreover, it is a description of consistent preferences we each of us have for the way we like to receive, process, and evaluate information.
There is an argument that learning styles can directly influence career choices, and that a given profession can attract the same learning style.

- Determining whether these practices were supported by scientific evidence, underpinned the research project undertaken by a team of renowned professors of psychology in the USA in 2008. Their findings should be considered before implementing prescriptive learning style models for educational training. Pashler, H. McDaniel, M. Rohrer, D. Bjork, R ( Dec. 2008) ‘Learning Styles: Concepts and Evidence in Psychological Science in the Public Interest vol.9 no. 3, 103-119.
- Authors Pashler, McDaniel, Bjork (2008) claim that despite the enormous amount of literature on learning-styles, very few studies had even used an experimental methodology capable of testing the validity of learning-styles applied to education. They also claimed it would be an error to conclude that all possible versions of learning styles have been tested and found wanting; many had not been tested at all.
