My personality type is ISTJ which is introverted, sensor, thinker, and judger.
Introverted people are more likely to be reserved, private and more likely to work
alone than with groups. Social events are not a strong characteristic of an introvert
which prefers to be in a calm quiet location with relatives and solitude. Sensor’s
tend to prefer problems with a set of guidelines that state facts of data directly and
learn through example or experience. Thinkers believe that rational and logical
thinking over emotional feeling’s. Judger’s have structure and balance their time
and schedule precisely. Which can be managing people or working with a set of
specific instructions and goals.
I believe that the personality type test is accurate in describing my
Personality. The test states that I am sixty percent introverted which means that i
prefer working alone and reflect on my thoughts. Introverts might not ask
question’s and rely on others to ask for them but if i know there is something i
don’t understand and absolutely can’t figure out by myself that’s when i ask a
question. I feel that personality can have a big impact on your grades, for example
extroverts are more likely to talk during a teacher’s lecture and cause them to miss
some information. While introverts tend to keep more thoughts to themselves and
are more likely to pay attention in class. Having a clear understanding of how you
learn and perceive information which can be more efficient in less time wasted.
V.A.R.K is visual, aural, read, write and kinesthetic. The way you process
or perceive information in the classroom can define the grade you earn. My
preferred choice of sensory is reading and writing because i like write and read
notes over several times. Memorizing information, notes and study material is my
most effective way of assuring that i pass my exams. You can have more than
one way of learning through your sensor’s which is called multimodal are not
necessarily smarter but just prefer multiple modes of learning which is purely
based on preference.
Being successful in the classroom for myself begins with paying attention
to the information the professor tries to relay. Sitting in the front of the classroom
is important to me because I know it gives me an advantage over someone who
sits in the back where it is difficult to hear. The first thing I do when I arrive to the
classroom is copy the notes the teacher has written on the board or screen. I sense
it will be important to know unless told otherwise by the instructor. Knowing I
prefer the sensor over intuition i will more than likely choose a class and degree
where the information is directly stated with facts and concrete data over a class
where theory and imagination is involved.
Personality and learning style play’s an important role in your education.
Students tend to perceive information different way and rates. The students who
have compatible learning style with the teachers teaching style will retain
information better and be efficient in learning. Every teacher might not have the
same teaching style but if you take steps to adapt you will increase your chances
of doing well in the class. Talk to the instructor and counselor’s so you’re
learning needs can be met and prevent you from failing the class.
