    INTJ Learning Style

    INTJ Learning Style

    INTJs learn best by studying, reflecting and conceptualising.

    To them, learning is a means to self-improvement and they actively seek to increase their understanding and knowledge.

    They learn particularly well on their own or in small groups and prefer to learn in an orderly and self-paced manner, and thus benefit from structured, well thought-out training programmes, self-teaching courses, or high quality coaching. Being set (and achieving) regular targets ensures that they maintain interest and gives them the feedback they need to show them that they are making steady progress. Loose unstructured teaching without clear outcomes or with a high degree of active participation or ‘play’ does not appeal.

    They enjoy learning theories and models, and need intellectual stimulation in order to maintain their interest. They ask many questions and tend not to accept a teacher 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.



    As learners, INTJs:

    - are stimulated by ideas and impatient to understand them

    - ask searching questions

    - prefer to work towards a clear goal or end-product

    - enjoy systems, theories, concepts and abstract patterns

    - have a strong need for evidence or proof when learning new facts

    - are good at focusing and concentrating

    - are motivated by their drive towards competence, authority and expertise may need encouragement to join in with group or team activities



    INTJs are most comfortable learning when:

    - experiencing new problems or opportunities from which to learn

    - able to stand back from events and listen/observe, e.g. observing a group at work, taking a back seat in a meeting, watching a video

    - allowed to think before acting, to assimilate before commenting, allowed time to prepare or do background reading

    - acquiring knowledge which is part of a system, model, concept, theory given the chance to question and probe the basic methodology, assumptions or logic behind something, e.g. by taking part in a question and answer session

    - intellectually stretched, i.e. by analysing a complex situation, being tested in a tutorial session, by being with high calibre people who ask searching questions

    - finding themselves in structured situations with a clear purpose

    - listening to or reading about ideas and concepts that emphasise rationality or logic and are well argued

    - analysing and then generalising the reasons for success or failure

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

    - required to understand and participate in complex situations.

    - concentrating on important issues by drawing up action plans



    INTJ’s are least comfortable when:

    - asked to repeat essentially the same activity over and over again

    - given precise instructions to follow with little room for manoeuvre

    - asked to attend to detail and tie up loose ends

    - involved in situations which require action without planning

    - asked to do something without a context or apparent purpose and to participate in situations emphasising emotions and feelings

    - involved in unstructured activities where ambiguity and uncertainty are high, e.g. with open-ended problems

    - faced with a lot of alternative techniques without any being explored in depth

    I approve.

    I learned all of this about myself years ago, actually, even before I knew that I was an INTJ. I was able to figure out that I learned best by seeking out patterns and drawing inferences from those patterns. I broke everything down into a series of steps which helped me tackle problems. My most obvious improvement was in Math/Algebra where I began to take the concepts and jot down my own step by step process. "First take the number near X, then do Y with it, then remove M for the product of P." Before that my grade in math was a pretty shaky C. That was around the 9th grade. By the 12th grade, however, my lowest grade in any math class was an A+ (my school actually gives A+'s, unlike a lot of schools).

    I honestly don't think I disagreed with any of that. The Least Comfortable section was 100%. I get soooo pissed off when forced to be under incompetent command. Receiving orders from an SP is like trying to eat an apple with spoon, because you always ask: "why?", and then get extremely frustrated...

    Oh hell to the yes! SP supervisors are the worst for me. I screen my would-be boss with a "quick chat and coffee" before I decide to take the job. If they strike me as vague or unstructured, I pull out of the deal.

    SP supervisors? The expressive/informative role variants of SPs are ESFPs, not ESTJs. Are you talking about SJ, or promoter? Or are you talking about an entire new theory that I've never heard of? :D

    Your test is humorous and efficient.

    I like the "least comfortable" part as well. I recognize so much there having been through it.

    Yes, improvisation is my enemy. I landed in an IMPROV class for high school, hated it with a passion. Waste of my time.

    I'm totally with you on this one. I never understood why people enjoyed improv theater classes of any kind. Whenever I would be on stage, I would always freeze up and feel awful about myself. Glad to know I'm not the only one who feels like this.
