    ENFP Learning Style

    ENFP Learning Style

    ENFPs learn best by exchanging ideas, conceptualising and role play.

    To them, learning is a way of expanding their horizons and a path towards growth and development. They prefer to learn in an unconstrained, self-directed manner in which they can follow or absorb themselves in their current interests. They enjoy playing with ideas, experimenting with possibilities and thinking around the subject. They take in information globally, seeing first its broad shape and the possibilities inherent in it before looking at the detail, which they sometimes overlook.

    A participative, varied and lively learning environment stimulates them mentally, and thus they tend to benefit from workshops, role playing exercises and discussion groups (as long as they are not held back by formality). Exercises, routine, detailed tasks, targets and highly structured programmes demotivate them.



    As learners, ENFPs:

    - are quick to grasp possibilities

    - are motivated to learn in order to further their own and other people’s development

    - enjoy abstraction and seeing patterns emerge by linking disparate ideas together

    - prefer a lively, open atmosphere

    - enjoy sharing their insights

    - tend to allow their creativity and inspiration free reign

    - may need to set themselves targets and timetables

    - benefit greatly from improving their note-taking technique, and from new ways of capturing information such as Mind Mapping



    ENFPs are most comfortable learning when:

    - experiencing new problems or learning opportunities

    - there are a wide range of diverse activities

    - asked to be in the limelight or positions of high visibility

    - allowed to generate ideas without constraints of policy or structure or feasibility

    - involved with other people, e.g. discussing ideas, solving problems as part of a team

    - when acquiring knowledge which is part of a system, model, concept, theory

    - they can question and probe the basic methodology, assumptions or logic behind something, e.g. by taking part in a question and answer session

    - offered interesting ideas and concepts even though they are not immediately relevant

    - shown techniques for personal improvement, such as how to make a good first impression, how to deal with awkward people



    ENFPs are least comfortable when:

    - involved in a passive role, e.g. listening to lectures, monologues, explanations, statements of how things should be done, reading, watching

    - asked to stand back and not be involved

    - required to engage in solitary work, e.g. reading, writing, thinking on their own

    - asked to repeat essentially the same activity over and over again, e.g. when practising tasks

    - they are given precise instructions to follow with little room for manoeuvre

    - required to focus on detail or tie up loose ends

    This is all true, wow. I think one of the reasons I picked my undergraduate major is because the classes for it were taught in such a hands-on, learning by doing style (lots of field trips!). Too bad most classes were taught lecture style. Such a painful way of learning, sitting back and having to passively absorb like that.

    I have nothing against listening to a teacher talking about a subject, as long as s/he doesn't go on for ages and as long as it's an interesting subject.

    Solitary work can be boring, but I prefer that to have to get along with people that I don't like. It's easier to just do it myself. But I find it more difficult to learn new things in solitude than to discuss it with intelligent and interesting people, yes.

    Practising tasks can be boring, but I improve my skills that way too.

    I could relate to a lot of this, its kind of exciting! Except, I really enjoy listening to lectures. Sometimes my mind wanders, but I've had really great, engaging professors that make me think :) I am a terrible reader and writer when it comes to school work though, I have to force myself to focus on the task at hand and it drives me crazy. =/

    I remember when I did my H of A degree, and we were taken around dozens of churches in Venice - on boats, off boats, looking at the scenery and images and moving about - along with the tutor talking and being able to demonstrate to us objects in real life, in a group setting, now THAT really stimulated my learning. Moving about in the world and seeing its beauty with others - miles better than a stuffy old lecture room where I could easily fall asleep!

    I always managed to learn everything on my own, that is, if that subject was interesting or useful to me, if not.. well I can't do anything about it. I've been told many times that I am a quick learner, simply because it was something I enjoyed and something I could improve. Such as singing, drawing, or learning about history and such. Of course you will love learning about things that you like, and I can say that us ENFPs are also quick visual learners when it comes to do work. I learn way quicker if someone shows me how to do something once or twice rather than read about it. Another downside is that, whenever I pick up a book that I want to study, more like, I am enforced to read that book since there is no other way to learn it, I always tend to fall asleep next to it, and I have no clue why.

    I learn so badly when the "WHY" of the subject is not understandable. I need to know what this specific topic is for, who will be affected, and those generalities. I need to understand the generalities to grasp the specifics. Hehe. It's almost impossible for me to grasp logic. Oh well.

    Exactly! That is also why I'm, more often than not, a kinestetic learner.
