This essay talks about why I want a college degree, my learning style, and what I think about my learning styles. I want a college degree to help with my Army career and to help with a career after the military. After completing some online personal learning style quizzes, I learned that my styles are solitary, visual, and logical and I think those styles fit me accurately most of the time. Even though, I do believe that styles depend on what exactly you are learning about.
So, why would I want a college degree? I want a degree to help with my career, while I am in the Army and when I decide to get out. Having a degree will help me with my promotion points so I can make staff sergeant and hopefully sergeant first class. After the Army, I would like to be a counselor and can only do that if I have a degree. To have a good job where you are not living paycheck to paycheck you need a degree, that is just how the world is today unless you are lucky and born into an already rich family which is not the case for most. Therefore, I want a college degree so I can better my future.
My personal learning styles based on Attribute advanogy.com (2004) are solitary, visual and logical. I read that solitary style, which was my highest score, means people like to do things on their own or by themselves. My second highest score was in visual learning, meaning people like to have images, pictures, colors, maps and graphs to use while learning. Logical was my third highest score. Logical learning style says that people like to classify and group information to help them learn and understand. I also used another website which told me I was a visual learner. This is what it said about a visual learning style: If you are a visual learner, then by all means be sure that you look at all study materials. Write out everything for frequent and quick visual review (Penn State, 2010).
I do agree with the results from the personal learning style...
