Subjects were given a verbalizer/visualizer questionnaire. They were also given several verbal and visual ability tests from the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale. The authors made a composite of these subtests to form a single visual ability scale and a single verbal ability scale. Based on previous work, they expected that these would correlate with the verbalizer/visualizer questionnaire. In other words, if I’m good with words, I know it, and I call myself a verbalizer, but if I’m good with spatial stuff I call myself a visualizer.
In the Penn study, visual and verbal cognitive styles were measured in 18 subjects by a self-report exam called the Verbalizer–Visualizer Questionnaire. The Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale, a standard intelligence test used here to grade visual against verbal learning styles, then measured cognitive abilities. Participants subsequently participated in a functional magnetic resonance imaging experiment.

However, a recent brain-based (fMRI) study did match up Verbalizer-Visualizer Questionnaire (VVQ) results and modality-specific subtests of the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale (WAIS) with location specific brain area matching using an fMRI. The results suggested that modality-specific cortical activity do underlie processing in visual and verbal cognitive styles (Kraemer et al. 2009.
They couldn't find any. One study they reviewed compared participants’ scores on the Verbalizer–Visualizer Questionnaire, a fifteen-item survey of true-or-false questions evaluating whether someone prefers auditory or optical information, with their scores on memory tests after presenting words via either pictures or verbal reading. On average, participants performed better on the free-recall test when they were shown images, regardless of their preferences.
