I think that quite many people (including me) performs a kind of visual
learning. For example, I can recall even after years how a certain piece
of information was positioned on the page of the book. Because of this, I
can hardly imagine how I could learn anything by listening to a tape (I
have never tried it, though). Sorry, this is only "anecdotal", but I hope
somebody here can name some real study on this.
