This study aimed to investigate the relationship between the different learning styles of Thai youths and their information behavior at a time where rapidly developing information and communication technology has affected the informational environment. This was a qualitative research study which used theoretical sampling to select study areas and involved thirty participants in their fourth, fifth and sixth year in a large secondary school. The Grasha-Riechmann Student Learning Style Scale was used to determine the students’ learning styles. The results indicated that learning styles affected information behavior only slightly because the collaborative style of Thai youths was to divide the task and work individually. Information behavior was best examined at a personal level.
