The visual people predominantly think and process the experiences of life in terms of visuals. Painters and photographers are usually visual people. Auditory people process their experiences of life in terms of sounds mostly. Great singers and orators are predominantly auditory people. Kinesthetic people love ‘hands-on’ experiences. You can be predominantly one, two or all of the three (visual, auditory and kinesthetic) simultaneously depending upon whether you score highly on one, two or all the three.Anil Bhatnagar is a motivational speaker, a personal growth coach, a reiki teacher, a painter, and author of five internationally acclaimed books. www.anilbhatnagar.com
