Since AP tests are coming up next week for us high-schoolers and my test scores have been on the decline lately, the topic of test-taking skills has been on my mind a lot.
I've never been a stellar test-taker. I didn't realize it before, but I tend to freak out and quietly panic inside when I take tests. Even if I've studied, I'll open up the test booklet, stare at the questions, and suddenly I'm so blinded by panic and all the worst possible outcomes (flunking, bubbling in the wrong answer choice on the wrong question) that I can't remember the actual material and end up doing poorly.
I am awful in stressful situations, and test-taking has become one of these stressful situations for me. I'm wondering if this is just me or if it's an ISFJ thing...and also, how would you go about fixing the problem? Thanks! :)
