Magnetic materials are commonly diamagnetic, paramagnetic or ferromagnetic. The following pdf (http://faculty.washington.edu/mrdepies/122/Workbook_122/WB_Solution_Ch32.pdf; see exercise #2) claims that magnetic materials are attracted to either pole of a magnet.
I understand that magnetic materials become magnetized when their domains are induced to spin in the same direction. The consistent spin somehow gives rise to a magnetic attraction.
How is it, however, that one given side of a magnetic object can attract to either side of a magnet. I would expect the magnetic material to behave as a magnet would and have poles.
