How do you think?


We tend to think in terms of images, sounds or feelings. These are known as the primary modalities - Visual, Auditory and Kinesthetic (Feeling). There is a level of overlap between the modalities but many people have a distinct preference for one specific modality.

This test is designed to identify what your primary modality might be - albeit in very rough terms. There are no right or wrong answers.

To complete the test simply answer each question with 1, 2 or 3 as follows and then click on the "evaluate" button:

  • Seldom/Never (1)
  • Sometimes (2)
  • Often (3)
