ENFP Learning Style

How ENFPs acquire, memorize and recollect information

An ENFP’s interest in studying something is driven by the search for solutions to people-related issues, as well as the relevance and usefulness of what they learn to other people. The more positively they think that people will respond to the subject, the greater the ENFP’s interest and enjoyment in it, and the greater their desire to apply what they learn.

ENFPs easily grasp material, especially if a large portion of it is devoted to the topic’s relevance or connection to the behavior or actions of people. They are good at remembering theoretical material, especially when it actively engages their feelings. ENFPs can also easily grasp a significant amount of information lacking strong conceptual connections. Whether or not material is presented in a systematic and logical way is not of great importance to them. ENFPs strive to define their feelings toward the information that they are receiving.

ENFPs are able to learn independently. Even so, they are generally active communicators in the learning process, and group work is favorable. They like to discuss the topic of study and seek feedback on their work. They learn well through active learning methods like debates, contests, and educational games.

ENFPs are able to work with material they have learned well in a variety of ways. They are able to effectively apply it in different projects and develop it creatively beyond what they have been taught. They get excited and absorbed working with material they have learned and understood well, and really enjoy it.

ENFPs do not always evenly distribute their effort when learning and studying, and may put off work until the last minute.
