Girls' self-confidence falls below that of boys from around age of nine

A popular and long-standing theory in the field of education that people, and children, are more receptive to certain methods of learning.

It states that people often fall into one of three main categories: Auditory, visual and kinesthetic.

There can be cross-over between different styles but a person will favor one method more, claim experts.

A visually-dominant learner absorbs and retains information better when it is presented in, for example, pictures, diagrams and charts.

An auditory-dominant learner prefers listening to what is being presented. He or she responds best to voices, for example, in a lecture or group discussion.

Hearing his own voice repeating something back to a tutor or trainer is also helpful.

A kinesthetic-dominant learner prefers a physical experience. She likes a 'hands-on' approach and responds to being able to touch or feel an object or learning prop.

Although it has been around for a long time, and is backed by 96 per cent or teachers, recent studies have found that the concept is inherently flawed.

Many researchers believe that the concept is wrong and people do not have a preferred learning method.
