    For example:

    When I was first starting in school, I was put into special education for reading, (one on one time each day away from the other kids), because I wasn't learning how like the other kids. Once it clicked for me, I was reading chapter books immediately, leaving the rest of my class in the dust.

    Sometimes I feel like I am not grasping material as well as the others in my classes, but once I spend some serious time organizing the material, (alone), I usually exceed my professor's expectations.

    One reason why I think this is:

    When teachers piece information together bit by bit, class by class, I feel extremely frustrated and like I don't have a clue what they're trying to teach us because I can't see the whole picture right away. I tend to not learn anything until I go home and learn it all at once. I have to be able to place the details into a system that I can visualize before I can really integrate the information into my brain.

    If I've already established the relevant system in my head, I am extremely quick to learn new things.

    Anyone else?

I am supposed to have some sort of learning disability or something along the line of individualized education plans but my parents never really looked into and always frowned upon labeling people which in mind is a bunch of shit.

    I am also frustrated by traditional learning methods. I'm a scanner, I scan for the pertinent info. Put it together and done. Fast and efficient. But I was never a high achiever in school because the primary learning methods are boring and I cant hold my attention there long enough.

    In my workplace all our training consists of slow and tedious videos with miles of repetition, I just skip to the test and intuit the answers. Works for me. I spent nearly every class in my life reading novels until the prompt to start whatever questions or exercises were on offer to cut the boredom.

    Wolfie: I think possibly the real problem is that the IN types will see far more possibilities in a piece of learing. Most of the population sees the obvious immediately and learn. INs don't know which 99 of their 100 options are wrong. It wasn't so much of a problem for me at school mind you but, even on here, when I read "Welcome to TypC" I thought I was being welcomed to that subset thing involving 5 colours and answered accordingly.

    School and reading was fine for me and I was in mostly advanced classes. I liked the structure because it was easy to do nothing and still do well. I could listen and not take notes and remember everything for exams. Essays were written on their due dates. It was a breeze. College has be a completely different experience and I don't like it.
