Preference Test Answers:

Now add up the three separate scores of A’s, B’s and C’s. The letter with the highest number indicates that this is probably your primary representational system.

A’s = Visual
B’s = Auditory
C’s = Kinaesthetic

If you score a 10 in each category, take the test again in a day or so; you’ll probably find one area predominates.

If your scores are still close together in value, it means that though you might be primarily visual, for example, many of your strategies are kinaesthetic or auditory.

If your scores are highly slanted, that is to say, higher than 17 in any category, you are clearly dominant in that representational system.
