ISTJ Learning Style

ISTJs learn best by experiencing, doing and practising. For them, the theory (and the links that can be made to their existing knowledge and skills) comes later.

They prefer to learn in an orderly and self-paced manner, and thus benefit from structured, well thought-out training programmes, self-teaching courses, or high quality coaching. Being set (and achieving) regular targets ensures that they maintain interest and gives them the feedback that they need to show them that they are making steady progress. Loose unstructured teaching without clear outcomes or with a high degree of experimentation, theory or 'play' does not appeal.

As learners, ISTJs:

bulletare more interested in facts than in abstract theories
bulletare more likely to employ proven ideas or methods
bulletlearn in a linear fashion
bulletprefer to work towards a clear goal or end-product
bulletenjoy hands-on training
bulletvalue knowledge that has practical application
bullethave a strong need for evidence or proof when learning new facts
bulletare good at focusing and concentrating
bulletare motivated by personal achievement, enhanced status and recognition.

ISTJs are most comfortable learning when:

bulletengrossed in short 'here and now' activities such as business games, competitive teamwork tasks, role-playing exercises
bulletable to stand back from events and listen/observe, e.g. observing a group at work, taking a back seat in a meeting
bulletallowed to think before acting, assimilate before commenting, to prepare in advance
bulletcarrying out painstaking research
bulletgiven the opportunity to review what they have learnt
bulletasked to produce carefully considered analyses and reports
bulletfinding themselves in structured situations with a clear purpose
bulletpresented with ideas and concepts that emphasise rationality or logic, and are well argued
bulletwhen concentrating on, or being shown techniques for doing things with obvious practical advantages e.g. saving time, drawing up action plans, dealing with awkward people
bulletgiven the chance to try out and practise techniques with coaching/feedback from a credible expert
bulletexposed to a model they can copy, e.g. a respected boss, a demonstration from someone with a proven track record
bulletgiven immediate opportunities to implement what they have learned

ISTJ’s are least comfortable when:

bulletthe learning is abstract and theoretical and or practical benefit
bulletexpected to act without clear guidelines or opportunities for planning or practice there is no practice or clear guidelines
bulletthere are political, managerial or personal obstacles to implementation
bulletasked to do something without warning, e.g. to produce an instant reaction
bulletobliged to participate in situations with a strong emotional or interpersonal content
bulletinvolved in unstructured activities where there is ambiguity and uncertainty

However, engaging in learning activities that contain some of the above is often of greater benefit in terms of their overall development, as discussed earlier.

Now you know your learning style, you can choose the type of learning that suits you, or adapt learning material or courses you are attending to incorporate some of the ways you will learn effectively.
