You can use your MBTI to help you identify the ways you learn best. By being aware of your MBTI you can also adapt if you find yourself in a classroom or a group work environment differs from your own MBTI preferences.
A key thing MBTI does is tell you what your preferences are for processing information. Do you like to deal with big ideas or facts? Do you do better with visuals or auditory experiences? Think about your MBTI preferences and the ways in which you like to work.
