Knowing your vision board style is an important step in creating one that will work for you. Often, when you feel like a vision board isn’t working or you feel like you just don’t get the concept, it’s because you’re trying to create a vision board that doesn’t suit you. If you want to know your vision board style then take this quiz.
Vision Board Style Quiz
Why is style so important? It’s what ensures you’ll look at and utilize your vision board on a daily basis. It’s what will connect you to your goals. And if you don’t embrace your style when creating your vision board, you just might get bored with it. It’s important to know your vision board style because it will help you to create the best vision board for you. Start with the quiz first.
For each question, please pick the answer that best describes you and how you do things. Write down the corresponding letter for each of your answers. If two choices for any question are close, please try to pick the one that you really do the most. (Think about what you do while in school or in work and even in your home in order to decide.)

Your Unique Vision Board Style
An Auditory style means you like affirmations over pictures and other visuals. You like to read your affirmations aloud so you can hear them because that’s how you connect to them. You can do the same thing with a vision board. Write your goals and mantras on strips of paper and glue them to the board. Each day, you’re then able to read those words aloud so you can connect to them.
Sure you can have some pictures on your board, this is especially helpful if you find that a secondary style for you is Visual. But with a primary auditory style, you really want to see those words so you can read them aloud in order to connect to them.
Someone with a Visual style needs to see pictures of their goals, not just words. These are the people who vision boards work really well for–a visual person. Although seeing words and pictures works well, someone with a Visual style might also prefer to have a map or path to follow. They can see their goals lined up for them and know which steps to take next.
Someone with a Kinesthetic or Tactile style needs to touch and feel. The very aspect of creating a vision board is a tactile thing, so that’s the start. But they should also have things to manipulate on their vision board. Things like puff paint to touch or doors to open or even a portable vision board that folds out. All of these things will make a tactile person happy and help connect them to the goals on their board.
Once you know your vision board style, you’re able to take that information and create the best vision board for yourself.
