Abstract:The aim of this study is to check whether there is a difference in how well verbal and visual learners solve concrete and abstract problems. It is hypothesized that the more verbal learners are better at solving abstract tasks and the more visual learners are better at solving concrete tasks. The participants were 28 college and university educated people from the Netherlands. All participants filled out the revised VVQ by Kirby, Moore and Schofield (1988) and took three tests. Analysis showed that verbal learners did score a bit better on the abstract task, though results were not significant.
