Sometimes, it is good to remember that there are multiple intelligences, you have the well known logical/mathematic intelligence, that we all know and a lot of us (me included) aren't as fond of. Next to this one, though there are seven more kinds of intelligence! Here is a page where you can read about all eight of them, and here you can take a test to find out which intelligences are strongest for you. The site even gives learning strategies tailored for each intelligence.

My intelligences apparently include Linguïstic (3.86/5), Music (3.68/5), Self or Intrapersonal (3.57/5) and Social or Interpersonal (3.57/5)

Some interesting ideas for learning strategies tailored for these intelligences are:

Linguïstic: reading aloud, writing down reflections about what I've read, keeping a journal, researching the origin and meanings of words, idioms and names.

Music: using a familiar tune to remember words in a series, creating a poem with an emphasis on certain sounds for pronunciation, working with words that sound like what they mean (onomatopoeia). One that I already do regularly is reading lyrics to music, and one that for some reason doesn't work for me at all is using music as background while studying, when I do this I only get distracted by the music.

Intrapersonal: again, keeping a journal, giving myself time to reflect on new ideas and information, working on the computer, practicing breathing for relaxation, using brainstorming methods before reading, and reading "how to" books, especially cookbooks.
