What makes learnwithscience so different?
The approach! We base our teaching methods on scientific studies – especially one that has to do with Psychology.
Have you ever heard of personality types? What about the MBTI?
What is the MBTI?
In the first half of the 20th century, a mother and daughter (Myers and Briggs) focused on the study of personality. Based on their findings, they published the MBTI Manual, also known as the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator. This book describes our personality in a total of 16 personality types using four letters.
What are the letters and what do they mean?
Each letter represents a different area:
- energy source;
- method for taking in information;
- decision-making process;
- life approach.
- prefer to be by themselves;
- enjoy focusing on one thing at a time;
- listen more than they talk.
- draw their energy from the world around them;
- can get easily distracted;
- like talking about their feelings.
- get information through their five senses;
- perceive what is happening around them;
- trust actual experience.
- rely on their instinct and imagination;
- prefer to focus on the big picture and possibilities;
- easily see patterns.
- tend to be empathetic and sensitive;
- make decisions based on their own personal values;
- are subject to mood swings.
- focus on the result;
- take few things personally;
- are all about the facts.
- thrive on making and sticking to plans;
- are comfortable following most rules;
- work first, play later.
- live day by day;
- usually work best under pressure;
- are likely to be disorganized.
How do we use the MBTI and why?
We prepare a detailed study plan based on your personality type. This allows us to maximize the effectiveness of each lesson and the entire course.
Here’s an example:
ESTJ personality types need to see the practical value of what they’re learning. INTPs for one require complex tasks in which they can come up with new ideas and solutions.
But that is not all...
We also work with therapists from BetterHelp, – the world’s largest provider of online counseling services – that, in addition to background information, also provide us with the necessary knowledge in the field of the Psychology of learning.
Last but not least...
SOME STUDIES WE LOVE ♥
In 1995, Ehrman & Oxford found that success in language learning is closely related to flexibility and the ability to challenge new information.
According to Winter (1989), learning is more effective in informal situations because it prepares the student for real- life.
Cronbach and Snow‘s research in 1977 revealed that it is important for the students to be able to try several study methods, as they are more likely to achieve better learning outcomes that way.
Wright’s 2006 study shows that ongoing assessment of students significantly improves their ability to achieve set goals.
In 1984, Doyle and Rutherford concluded that how a student and a lecturer get along is an essential part of their teaching.
