According to the VAKOG webpage (2013), VAKOG is an acronym that describes the 5 types of memory that people have.
It stands for
- Visual memories
- Auditory memories
- Kinaesthetic memories
- Olfactory memories
- Gustatory memories
Visual memories are those that are good at remembering things that they see such as faces. Auditory memories are are good at remembering things that they hear such as voices and songs. Kinaesthetic memories are good at remembering things that relate to movement or activities. Olfactory memories are good at remembering smells or using smell as a memory jogger. Gustatory memories are good at remembering tastes and using them as memory joggers.
Dilts R.B. (1999) defines NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) as “the fundamental dynamics between mind (neuro) and language (linguistic) and how their interplay affects our body and behavior (programming).”
Wikipedia (2103) describes the relationship between the two as VAKOG being a model within the representational system called Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP). In my own words, NLPs help describe the workings of the mind in ways that the average person can comprehend. VAKOG is a model that relates memory (a type of learning) with a persons 5 senses.
