In response to a related question about learning styles, I provided this answer.
In that answer, I quote Pashler et al (2009) which is generally critical of the learning styles literature.
I quote Pashler et al where they state:
Our review of the literature disclosed ample evidence that children
and adults will, if asked, express preferences about how they prefer
information to be presented to them. There is also plentiful evidence
arguing that people differ in the degree to which they have some
fairly specific aptitudes for different kinds of thinking and for
processing different types of information.
However they find minimal experimental evidence to indicate that students assigned to educational conditions that are adjusted to their stated learning style preferences do any better.
