    I sort of like explanations that include examples. I can see "why" better when I can relate it to other concepts and things I already know. I like having a very thorough understanding of something.

    well intuitives would learn better off of examples because thinking intuitive means thinking in concepts. He will be able to connect the concept to the example and have an understanding deeper than words as a result. The Sensing thinker i think, would need more specific explanations

    Si types I think.. Need the smaller details. Maybe Ti types as well. Anyone who has a more exacting nature, I suppose. I think examples are the thing on which many concepts are built. Like a brick building. The building is a building, but the bricks are all the examples that made the building exist. And I view Si as seeing the building for all it's bricks.

    Example. If I see an example, I can quickly identify all of the elements that make it an example of the principle under discussion instead of having to labor through lengthy, often repetitive or obvious paragraphs of explanation. It's quicker.

    That's just what I prefer if made to choose between one or the other. I imagine that in reality, though, both are needed for me to learn best, and that's probably more or less the case for everybody regardless of type.

    I'm a socionics INTj (LII) which function wise is closest to MBTI INTP.

    According to this site, socionics INTj/LII is a result type.

    Why would result types necessarily prefer examples?

    I don't have a strong preference for examples or explanations. It depends on what I'm learning. If I can get both, all the better.
