Learning Styles Indicator (LSI)

Boost personal development by understanding learning preferences

You can explore your Learning Style by taking this questionnaire. It shows the degree to which you prefer one of four styles. Based on Carl Jung’s model of Psychological Type, the LSI explores how underlying preferences affect the way people think, learn and communicate. By setting personal learning preferences against Kolb’s experiential learning cycle, the LSI encourages appreciation of the complete learning process. Learners are encouraged to understand their natural contributions in the context of the learning cycle, to value of contributions from those with different preferences and how sometimes it is important to develop flexibility by stretching a natural learning approach to become a more complete learner.

Test Details and Sample Reports

The LSI provides a quick introduction to Psychological Type and is part of the Type Mapping System. It is used extensively by FE and HE careers guidance professionals, and in the early stages of corporate team building.

The Learning Styles Indicator (LSI) combines personality-based learning preferences with a well respected model of learning.

It brings together two of the key dimensions of Psychological Type (What energises us: Extraversion-Introversion; How we see the world: Sensing-Intuition) with the practicality of Kolb’s experiential learning cycle.

Learners are encouraged to understand their natural preferences, the value of other learning approaches, and where flexibility is required to make them more effective. The LSI can also be used to illustrate communication style and as a way of demonstrating the effects of individual preferences in team-working.
