I am a visual learner.

I have always felt that I’m a combo learner- multiple learning styles all wrapped up together.  But, if I had to choose a style that suits me best, it would probably be visual.  I’m a visual learner.

Maybe that’s why I’m so drawn to websites that are visualizations.  I’m amazed at the visual content that the web provides.  Many of these sites are also interactive, allowing the user to manipulate the visual, making it all the more meaningful.

Here are a few of my favorite finds:

We Feel Fine: An exploration of human emotion

Real-time search of blog posts that include the phrase “I feel” or “I am feeling,”  View in various visual formats and narrow your search by location, weather, age, and more.
