    Listener. I would have thought author as I pick up information better though reading that listening; but reading over the more in-depth descriptions I do think I fit listener better in terms of studying techniques. I consider the techniques listed under 'listener' to be more active studying and those listed under 'author' to be more passive. But I still feel a mix of both.

    "Does it even matter" - evidence is increasingly suggesting that no, it doesn't. There is no strong evidence to suggest that people have specific learning styles, likely similar to the myth that listening to music makes you more productive, when it actually does the opposite. The best way to learn is through a variety of techniques, and repetition.

    Ah, learning styles. The pseudoscience that schools love to buy into.
