ISTP ISTPs are most comfortable learning when:
♠ set problems to solve and can engross themselves in the subject ♠ there are a range of diverse activities ♠ allowed to generate ideas without constraints of policy or structure or feasibility ♠ able to stand back from events and listen or observe ♠ allowed to think before acting or assimilate before commenting ♠ they can carry out research, i.e. investigate, assemble information, probe to get to the bottom of things ♠ they have the opportunity to review what has happened or what they have learned, i.e. are asked to produce carefully considered analyses and reports ♠ there is an obvious link between the subject matter and a problem or opportunity on the job ♠ they have the chance to try out and practise techniques with coaching or feedback from a credible expert ♠ given techniques currently applicable to their own jobs ♠ given immediate opportunities to implement what they have learned ISTP’s are least comfortable when:
♠ the learning is not related to an immediate need they recognize or can see, or there appears to be no immediate relevance or practical benefit ♠ the organizers of the learning, or the event itself, seem distant from reality, all theory and general principles ♠ there is no practice or clear guidelines on how to do something ♠ they feel that people are going round in circles, engaging in pointless discussion and not getting anywhere fast enough ♠ there are political, managerial or personal obstacles to implementation ♠ they can’t see sufficient reward from the learning activity, e.g. harmonization, shorter meetings, standardization, greater efficiency. ♠ asked to attend to detail, tie up loose ends, focus on the task in hand
