Is your teen the kind of person who likes speaking up in class? Do they get energized by brainstorming with other students or coming up with ideas on their own first, and then sharing the best ones?
While it’s helpful for teachers to understand personality differences, it’s more helpful for students to understand themselves. Because they’ll be the ones to help themselves along the way.
Extraversion (often spelled "Extroversion") or Introversion are the first of the four letters that make up the Myers-Briggs personality type. They tell you how you’re energized. And how you learn best.
But self-awareness around personality type doesn’t just help students in the classroom. When they start new career, a new project, even a new task, they are often learning something new.
Here’re a few different learning strategies for extraverted vs. introverted learners.
Students who have a preference for Extraversion process information externally and may not spend much time thinking before they speak or act.
People who have a preference for Introversion process information internally and need more time to think about things on their own.
