Snow's Learning Style
The January 13, 2014 prompt for "Blogging Circle of Friends Prompt Forum is
Whats your learning style? Do you prefer learning in a group and in an interactive setting? Or one-on-one?
Do you retain information best through lectures, or visuals, or simply by reading books?

I learn better by repeating the information over and over or writing it down several times while repeating it. This may be why I had so much trouble with certain classes in school because I didn't find my learning style until later in life. It helps If I can take notes during a lecture it helps or while reading a book, but not as much as repeating the material aloud while taking notes.

I didn't discover my learning style until after I became a Baha'i. In fact, it was a year or so after I declared my belief in Baha'u'llah that I discovered it. I had been reading the morning and evening prayer aloud, from the prayer book, when it dawned on me one day that I had memorized the prayers. I still read the prayers aloud periodically to make sure I haven't forgotten the words, but most of the short prayer I say everyday I have learned. I've even memorized one of the longer prayers by doing this.

Thinking back over my life, I should have know this because when I was a child I memorized Psalms 23 and the Lord's Prayer by reading them aloud over several weeks. I can still repeat both or parts of both on the spur of the moment. I have to think a bit to repeat the entire 23rd Psalms, but not the Lord's Prayer (at least most of the time). All though, I think it's good idea to have a copy of the scriptures with me when I talk to someone about them because memory is fickle thing especially in a conversation when it becomes necessary to repeat the words exactly and not paraphrase them.
