Recently I was involved in a thread which was discussing different personality types in Martial Arts and what types of arts each type may be attracted to etc. This is along the same vein. What is your learning style/personality? I'm a mix of visual and tactile. I can pick up most things if I watch the technique being shown just once or twice but find I learn the little things when it's done to me. I love being used as the demonstration dummy in the middle when the class is shown a technique. I don't know if it's a sign of masochism, a desire to be the centre of attention or something else (on a subconcious level) but conciously it's a case of when a fellow student does a tech on me I won't feel anything even close to how it feels when the instructor does it - and that's with him being very very gentle. Plus I have weird joints so he seems to be the only one who automatically adjusts to get the desired effect. How about the rest of you guys and girls? Do you learn by watching, verbal explanation, reading about it, having it done to you or something else? How many of you enjoy having the techniques demonstrated on you?
