By crashing and burning.

Nah, I favor visual and physical/kinesthetic and logical and solitary, but am adaptable, or so I like to tell myself.

In person is often best, but my memory lazy and that is the biggest detriment.
Where there's smoke, there's fire. Just because you can't see it doesn't mean it doesn't exist. So just shut up, and bring some water.

I learn a lot through close reading and narrating. If I can say the material out loud and string it together into a story or a lecture, I've got it.

I also learn through doing, but there's a bit less of that in my field besides, well, reading/writing/teaching. Still, I've found that visual diagrams help, manual manipulation helps, hearing it helps. Basically, all the ways help even if I start reading/writing/reciting first.

I am super visual and also through writing, as long as I'm paying attention while I write (so just taking notes without being engaged does nothing). Reading textbooks is probably my least effective, at least if it's a super dry boring text.
