General Learning Style (INTP)

Students with this learning style learn best by reading, reflecting and conceptualising.

To them, learning is an ongoing process throughout life, and a way of understanding the universe. They enjoy playing with ideas, experimenting with possibilities and thinking around their subject, and are often absorbed in thought.

They learn particularly well on their own or in small groups and prefer unstructured teaching in which they are free to explore ideas and experiment for themselves. They ask many questions and tend not to accept a teacher's or a system's authority at face value. Memorisation of facts, sequential exercises and hands-on training are less useful to them than discussion, reflection, analysis and brainstorming.

They prefer an intellectually stimulating atmosphere in which open debate or enquiry is encouraged, though they may need encouragement to communicate and explain their ideas in terms that other people can understand. They enjoy amassing knowledge and demonstrating their expertise or competence in their own field, but may need to learn to utilise their knowledge in practical ways.

College Learning Style

Students with this learning style are quiet but undying sceptics. They are mainly interested in new ideas and have little concern for parties or small talk. They can, however, become quite talkative about a topic they've recently studied. Their logic cuts directly to the core issue of any problem.
