Favored Representational Systems Descriptions
V – Represents Visual representational system
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 organized, neat, well-groomed and orderly. They are often thin and wiry. They memorize 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.
A – Auditory representational system
People who are auditory will quite often move their eyes sideways. They breathe from the middle of their chest. They typically talk to themselves, and can be 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.
K – Kinesthetic representational system
People who are kinesthetic will typically be breathing from the bottom of their lungs, so you’ll see their stomach go in and out when they breathe. They often move and talk very slowly. They respond to physical rewards, and touching. They also stand closer to people than a visual person. They memorize by doing or walking through something. They will be interested in your program if it “feels right”, of if you can give them something they can grasp.
Ad – AuditoryDigital representational system (non-sensory)
This person will spend a fair amoutn of time talking to themselves. They will want to know if your program, “makes sense.” The auditory digital person can exhibit characteristics of the other major representational systems.
