Some of us are auditory learners, we learn by hearing and listening. We understand and remember things that we have heard, by the way, it sounds and we have an easier time understanding spoken instructions than written ones. Often times, people like us are found humming or talking to themselves or others when we are bored or in need of ideas. Perhaps even to just get started with a task.
