Doshas and Learning Styles
Vatas learn quickly, but they then forget quickly as well. It is helpful for Vatas to write things down, and carry a day-planner or a Palm-type organizer with them all the time. Vatas learn best by listening. A good technique for studying is to listen to a book on tape while reading along.
Pittas have a good, sharp, general memory. Pittas are visual learners, so it is helpful for them to have charts, graphs and pictures to refer to. They will remember something better if they read it rather than if they hear it, so keep “to do” lists for them.
Kaphas take more time learning things, but once they learn them, they don’t forget. Kaphas learn best by association, so tell them stories that relate to the lesson at hand, or give examples of experiences they can remember which apply to what they need to learn.
