    Default Explain to me how INTJ's can do this

    So I've noticed that the way INTJ's learn is so strange. It seems that when most people learn a new concept, they will learn one aspect of a concept, then another, and then another, until they finally grasp everything fully. This seems to be the normal way to learn. However, it seems that INTJ's have a very different way of learning. INTJ's tend to grasp nothing or absolutely everything about a concept, with very little room in-between. In other words, INTJ's will understand absolutely nothing about a concept for a while, and then they have this big, "EUREKA!" moment. When this happens, suddenly they're level of understanding goes from about 0 to 10 in what seems like only a matter of seconds. How on earth does this work?

    "INTJs do not deal with things in a logical way, going into the intellectual process of elucidation. They just catch an intuition, going round and round amplifying it, so that in the end we get a complete picture, but by intuitive means, not by logical means." - C.G. Jung, 1937

    "But instinct is something which transcends knowledge. We have, undoubtedly, certain finer fibers that enable us to perceive truths when logical deduction, or any other willful effort of the brain, is futile. Back in the deep recesses of the brain was the solution, but I could net yet give it outward expression. As I uttered these inspiring words the idea came like a flash of lightning and in an instant the truth was revealed. A thousand secrets of nature which I might have stumbled upon accidentally, I would have given for that one which I had wrested from her against all odds and at the peril of my existence. The gift of mental power comes from God, Divine Being, and if we concentrate our minds on that truth, we become in tune with this great power." ~ Nikola Tesla (INTJ)

    Why do you think it's only INTJs who do this?

    I tend to think that INTJs are visual spatial learners instead of the normal auditory-sequential learner. It is so in my case.

    If you have a look at how visual spatial learners work, you might see how they approach a subject, because we work top down, instead of bottom up... (quick way to sum it up).

    Hope that helps.

    I don't know if we learn "concepts" very well per se. I think we take in a lot of pieces of information and there is this process that goes on inside our heads and then the concept occurs to us. People might explain a concept to us but it's just a data point - raw information - until the perception is formed which internalizes it. So it is kind of like a personal concept.

    Not sure if that makes sense...

    I cannot understand concepts piecemeal, but only in their entirety. Books and course notes, on the other hand, are generally written in a linear fashion, showing you a series of pieces that make up the concept. What this means is that I will read or hear about all these pieces, not really understanding any one of them, until we get to the end and I can see how they all fit together. After reviewing it all, they will snap into place like the pieces of a puzzle, and I will have a top-down understanding of the topic that will never leave me.
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    It's not lol

    INFJ's, ENFJ's, INTJ's, and ENTJ's do this...

    Ni needs the whole picture to do things.

    I learn very much the way Coriolis describes.
