The Gregorc Learning (and Expressing) Styles
as interpreted by Floating Neutrinos
If this page were to ever disappear from the web, it would be a great loss.   Never have I seen a better description of learning styles and types than here.  I highly recommend this two-by-two table of learning styles.  

In particular, please consider the bipolar worlds of  CONCRETE and RANDOM vs.  ABSTRACT and Sequential.   These two learning styles don't mix well, leading to conflict if the source of the mismatch is not identified.    i highly recommend this page.
