Quiz Outcomes

  • 1.
    Your Primary Representation system is Kinesthetic 
    Kinaesthetic is the Representational System dealing with feelings and sensations. It can be internal or external. Those that have Kinaesthetic as their lead representational system like to get a feel for things and people. They need to feel the garment, squeeze the melon, brush away dust and pet hairs, picks things up and play with them. They need to be doing. And they process information slower than the visual and auditory people, often looking down while you are presenting- they are literally getting a feel for what it is you are presenting.
  • 2.
    Your Primary Representation system is Auditory  
    People who are auditory will move their eyes sideways (remember Richard Nixon?). They breathe from the middle of their chest. They typically talk to themselves, and are easily distracted by noise, (some even move their lips when they talk to themselves.) They can repeat things back to you easily, they learn by listening, and usually like music and talking on the phone. They memorize by steps, procedures, and sequences (sequentially). The auditory person likes to be TOLD how they’re doing, and responds to a certain tone of voice or set of words. They will be interested in what you have to SAY about your program.
  • 3.
    Your Primary Representation system is Visual  
    People who are visual often stand or sit with their heads and/or bodies erect, with their eyes up. They will be breathing from the top of their lungs. They often sit forward in their chair and tend to be organised, neat, well-groomed and orderly. They memorise by seeing pictures, and are less distracted by noise. They often have trouble remembering verbal instructions because their minds tend to wander. A visual person will be interested in how your program LOOKS. Appearances are important to them. They are often thin and wiry.
  • 4.
    Your Primary Representation system is Internal Dialogue  
    This person will spend a fair amount of time talking to themselves. They will want to know if your program MAKES SENSE, is it logical, follows a structure etc. The internal dialogue person can exhibit characteristics of the other major representational systems.
