    The method in which an extravert and introvert absorbs information tends to differ in that in abstract essence, the extravert will take in information quickly yet a higher percentage will be forgotten then that of an introvert. It is like holding a bottle of water over the face and drinking with lots of water fallen to the floor. An introvert will take in the information similar to that of sucking a straw. It is slower but less will be forgotten. The mechanisms of which an introvert tends to take things from a more scoped method of thought disallowing distractions from other sources whereas the extravert, who has a more wide scoped thought process, takes in information from many different directions but loses more of it in the process.

    The person with a capacity to absorb more information will absorb more information

    Type would be inconsequential, I believe
