I had very good studying technique. That is: I read extremely fast, and can pick put what they will ask in tests. Then I study that and just remember the main scenarios. This also has the benefit that I remember it decades later. And the "good little students" who grind their books forget their data one day after the test. That is in part a main problem with the educational system. And the ability/lack of seeing the "whole" is also a difference between N and S.wondering how other people (entp) study, im a very disorganized person and i usually wait to the last minute to do things, and im trying to get more organized, any help you can give me would be great. :laughing:
haha procrastination is defiantly Entp fashion, but we always seem to get away with it. i had the biggest test of the year, didnt study but managed to pull over 90- but i know when it gets harder i cant be doing that shit soo i need to get in the academic mood :laughing:What I'm doing right now. Freaking out about how we're having the test on Friday and I haven't listened a shit to what the teacher has said so I'm basically learning from scratch, sitting here browsing topics on PersonalityCafé, skimming through my book and realizing that hey, I actually know this stuff, so I can just chill anyway xD
No, seriously. Any possible tips I might give you on something I myself suck at is probably to sit down in a neutral area freed of any distractions (i.e laptop, cell phone, TV etc), like the kitchen, for instance, and try to focus. When I feel like I really need to get serious because I've a shitload to study and I don't know half of it, I try to split it up all evenly, for example, two chapters at a time, then a break. Then I set some kind of a loud timer in the kitchen, walk off to do something else during my 15-min-break, and then when it sets off, I'll have to walk back to the neutral area anyhow to turn it off, so I might as well keep studying.
Most of the time I just end up turning off the timer and going back to whatever I was doing during my break though, thinking, "I'll only do this for 5 more minutes, then I'll keep studying..." xD Procrastination in true ENTP fashion, m'dear.
You are not allowed to switch types again.I skim the text...for the first time. :crazy: I don't always attend class, so skimming is extra necessary.
I just try to "get it" and just use my logic on the actual test.
And on the way to school in my truck, I listen to death battlefield/march of doom type of classical music to await the test. lol I'm overdramatic like that.
