Unfortunately, the theory of learning styles has been debunked:

What is more important is if you are of the growth mindset or fixed mindset. Since you are reading this, there is a pretty good chance that you are of the growth mindset. The growth mindset means you know you can learn new things, and that skills and intelligence are not fixed at birth.

Definitely agree with the utmost importance of having a growth mindset! Without it, we won't be striving to be better or learning how to be better.

The growth mindset concept does not negate the helpfulness of understanding your learning style; understanding yourself in mindset, behaviour as well as preferences would help to complement one's growth.
