Most Common Suggestions I Make on the Forums.
1. Start by writing a balanced chemical equation.
2. Don't confuse thermodynamic stability with chemical reactivity.
3. Forum Supports LaTex

I got multimodal, too.  If nothing else, this proves once and for all I don't listen enough.  I should emphasize the kinesthetic part to my professors when they get all confused about me wanting to stand up and walk around during long lectures or the long boring synthesis parts of labs.  I don't know how anyone can sit for 3 hours straight without their butt going numb and falling off from lack of blood supply.

Seems like I'm not good in any learning methods. This tells you how BS such online-tests are.

Hmm... I seem to be well rounded, but not particularly good at anything.

I learn "very slowly" IMO. ;)

    * Visual: 3
    * Aural: 2
    * Read/Write: 3
    * Kinesthetic: 5

I would think most chemists would score highest kinesthetically thanks to our affinity for practical experiments.

Hmmm guess I should read/write what I do and forget about looking at it and listening to it.

Actually I fall asleep in class all the time.

Wow tamin - 0 for visual!    My GF is partially deaf - I might get her to take the test to see what she gets for Aural.
