    Default How do you prefer to learn?

    Since NTs like learning new things...

    Definitions:

    1. By doing
    2. By observing
    3. By hearing/reading


    Examples:

    1. 1: You would install Windows Server 2008 and use it for a while. 2: You would assemble a computer.
    2. 1: You would observe someone (a teacher, a friend, etc.) using Windows Server 2008. 2: You would observe someone assembling a computer.
    3. 1: You would hear someone telling (a lesson, a conference, etc.) how to use Windows Server 2008. 2: You would listen to how to assemble a computer (a lesson, a conference, etc.).


    If you think that this list needs changes, let me know.

    I go for 1 - doing, but I don't do things just to learn them; but then again, I don't learn if I see no reason to. I've also read that most INTPs prefer reading.

    By inhaling the basics then experimenting on my own. Being forced to read, watch video's or any other form of conventional learning is anathema to me. My present employer spends thousands a year on producing stupidly slow and boring video's. I skip to the exam at the end and wing it....

    I guess from paper/pdf, watching and testing what I learn (eg, learn to build a TV then do it by hand). True NTP style would mean you've got all the resources for the resources you need (the market for newspapers, internet).

    Lay out the end result, system, theme, or goal.
    Then we can discuss the pieces or variables.

    I learn more through discussions and letting me walk through it, less when I have to watch you or read step by step.

    By observing, then imitating/doing. And probably abit of reading.
