32 Learning Strategies for Different Personality Types

33 Extraverts Learn best when in action Value physical activity Like to study with others

34 Extravert Learn by talking. Discuss what you have learned with others. Like variety and action. Take frequent breaks and do something active.

35 Caution! Extraverts can get so distracted by activity and socialization that the studying does not get done.

36 Introverts Learn best by pausing to think Value reading Prefer to study individually Need quiet for concentration

37 Introvert Find a quiet place to study by yourself. Plan to study for longer periods of time so you can concentrate. Find places with minimal distractions such as the library. Turn off the phone.

38 Caution! This type may miss out on sharing ideas with others and the fun and social life of college.

39 Sensing Seeks specific information Memorizes facts Values what is practical Follows instructions Likes hands-on experience Wants clear assignments

40 Sensing Good at mastering facts and details. Think about practical applications to motivate yourself. Ask, “How can I use this.”

41 Caution! This type may miss the big picture or general outline by focusing too much on the facts and details. Make a general outline to see the relationship and meaning of the facts.

42 INtuitive Seeks quick insights Uses imagination to go beyond the facts Values what is original Likes theories Reads between the lines Independent thinkers

43 INtuitive Good at learning concepts and theories Ask yourself, “What is the main point?”

44 Caution! Since this type focuses on general concepts and theories, they are likely to miss the details and facts. To learn the details, organize them into broad categories that have meaning for you.

45 Thinking Wants objective material to study Logic guides learning Likes to critique new ideas Finds flaws in an argument Learns by challenge and debate Wants logical presentations

46 Thinking Thinking types are good at logic. Ask yourself, “What do I think of these ideas?” Debate or discuss your ideas with others. Allow time to think and reflect on your studies.

47 Caution! These types construct logical arguments and defend them. They may need to learn to respect the ideas of others, especially feeling types.

48 Feeling Wants to be able to relate to the material personally Personal values are important Likes to please instructors Learns by being supported and appreciated Wants faculty who establish personal rapport with students

49 Feeling Search for personal meaning to motivate yourself. Help others to learn. Whenever possible, choose classes that relate to your personal interests. Find a comfortable environment for learning.

50 Caution! This type may neglect studies because of time spent in helping others. They may find it difficult to pay attention to material that is not personally meaningful.

51 Judging Find ways to organize the material to learn it easier. If possible, select instructors who present material in an organized way. Set goals and use a schedule to motivate yourself. Use a daily planner or to-do list.

52 Caution! This type tends to be structured and controlled which can limit creativity. They may be in conflict with others who are less organized. They may be overachievers who get stressed easily.

53 Perceptive Good at looking at the possibilities and keeping the options open. Allow time to be thorough and complete your work. Have fun while learning. Study in groups with a mixture of perceptive and judging types.

54 Caution! This type may work on too many projects at once. Work on managing your time to meet deadlines.

107 When we take responsibility for our actions, we create our success.
