    Prefer learning through reading and pondering things over, trying to find patterns and logical explanations.

    I'm more visual and kinestetic than auditory. I tend to tune out during lectures and long explanations. I prefer to either read it or just jump in and try it.

    Learning by doing, helps the information to crystallize better and helps me retain it over a longer term.

    I know I'm highly visual, but overall pretty balanced. If I neglect any it doesn't work very well.

    watching someone else do it in person or on video. interactive group discussion or by reading. i can't retain much by just sitting and listening.

    Hmm, I usually retain and integrate via doing things. Learning firsthand, doing it myself and playing around. Listening to people only does so much; I do most actual learning in my own time/space, either self study or practicing/doing it myself.

    I like drawing from multiple viewpoints and media to learn something new. Books, articles, forums, documentaries, video clips, lectures/podcasts—I'll scavenge them all and see what patterns show up. Visual representations and metaphors are really good, especially for scientific concepts. With like writing or cooking, I experiment to learn new techniques. It lets me adjust different elements to see how each changes the result.

    This might sound crappy, but I learn a lot by watching other people fail.

    This is yet another reason why I am doubting my ENTP typing. To tell you the truth, I'm actually pretty damn good at problem solving. However, I feel like I don't solve problems like a Ti user, at all. No, instead I tend to solve problems like a Te user. My problem solving method is as follows: 1) Generate as many ideas as I can as to how I can solve a problem. 2) Do hours of research online on the problem that I am trying to solve. 3) Consult experts in the field of the problem that I am trying to solve and ask them what they would do. 4) Come up with a detailed step-by-step action plan for solving the problem. 4) Implement the plan.

    Do you see what I mean? This sounds like a Te way to solve a problem, not a Ti way. It seems like Ti users just sit and ponder the solution to a problem in their own heads, and don't tend to put much emphasis on what experts in the field have to say. Isn't this right?

    Sounds sort of like Je leading or at least emphasis on Je, Te is responsible for actively searching for sources for a concept in the environment that are thought to be objectively true, Ti juxtaposes this by attempting to reason the concept via subjective logical understanding. For instance, when I'm interested in a topic, I immediately synthesize sources by searching for them via the internet, and I will often attempt to apply that topic to almost everything to see what I can do with it. Je also defers to authorities on the subject, whereas Ji is more likely to question authorities on the subject.

    Interesting, what type would you say you might be if not ENTP? You don't strike me as ENTJ, so maybe ESTJ? But you don't seem too SJ either. And I wouldn't say FJ. You seem kind of like a combination of ENTP and SJ if that makes any sense.

    I would think that I'm ENFP then.

    Maybe you're an ENFP with a good Te.

    Answering the question of the topic, I'm a INTP and I learn better by myself. Unlike you, I tend to get bored when I have to listen to long explanations from someone else, or a video. Prefer to read it, analyze it and see how logical principles are connected.
