There is no correct answer here. Different students have different learner types. In order to fit the lectures to your type, it
is useful for the teacher to know your profile. You fit a learner type if you scored 23 to 40 for that type.
Instructors tend to teach the same way that they learn. CS learners tend to run their classes as CS teachers unless they work
to incorporate other methods.
