The following are just some of the qualities of a good learner. However, we must note that what may be a good quality for one individual may not be as effective for another. It is a matter of choosing the right practice particular to the one who is learning. Still, we can get a general overview that others may add on to. * To be a good learner, one must first have the mentality that he/she is not beyond being taught. * A good learner must have a passion for knowledge. It is an innate energy or drive that facilitates a need for higher understanding, which may also be particular to a specific goal or objective. * A good learner usually will have or seek to increase good critical thinking skills. It's the ability to take everything under consideration, and through simplicity of thought (which is not simple thinking) make sense out of things, or issues that may even appear to be chaotic at first. * A good learner remains focused on the subject matter at hand, and takes time to review the material until it is assimilated appropriately, or we might say until it is well ingrained. * A good learner also knows when it is a good time or bad time to study. In other words as mentioned above, understands the importance of remaining focused. * A good learner will usually have good time management skills. * A good learner perseveres and does not become frustrated or discouraged when items are not easily understood at first. * A good learner will realize that in many instances, learning is not always a spontaneous event, but something that is realized over a period of time. * A good learner understands the importance of practice, practice, practice. Well, the above qualities are just some off the top of my head. I am sure others can add on to the list, and even add a different perspective Viper1
Visual, Auditory, Kinesthetic, and Tactile. Expansion on that would be the Multiple Intelligences.
