INTPs are most comfortable learning when:
♠ encountering new problems or opportunities from which to learn ♠ able to stand back from events and listen/observe, e.g. taking a back seat in a meeting, watching a video ♠ allowed to generate ideas without constraints of policy or structure or feasibility ♠ allowed to think before acting, to assimilate before commenting, time to prepare or do background reading ♠ acquiring knowledge which is part of a system, model, concept, or theory, even when this is not immediately relevant ♠ given the chance to question and probe the basic methodology, assumptions or logic behind something, e.g. by taking part in a question and answer session ♠ listening to or reading about ideas and concepts that emphasize rationality or logic and are well argued ♠ analyzing and then generalizing the reasons for success or failure INTP’s are least comfortable when:
♠ asked to repeat essentially the same activity over and over again ♠ given precise instructions to follow with little room for maneuver ♠ asked to attend to detail and tie up loose ends ♠ ‘forced’ into the limelight, e.g. to act as leader/chairman, to role-play in front of onlookers; ♠ given precise and specific instructions of how things should be done ♠ asked to do something without a context or apparent purpose or to participate in situations emphasizing emotions and feelings ♠ faced with a lot of alternative techniques without any being explored in depth ♠ there is more focus on facts and figures than intellectual exploration
