Are you preparing for IELTS in a way that works with your personality?

Do you assume that because you’re an introvert, you can’t succeed on the Speaking test?

What’s the difference between an introvert and an extrovert:

  • Introvert:  You lose energy from being around people and stimulation
  • Extrovert: You can get energy from outside stimulation like interaction with people, music, crowds, etc.

How should you change your study plan based on your personality?

The important thing is to realize your personality style and do what works for you.

If you are an introvert, you may have an easier time focusing and working by yourself at home.

You can focus more time on the Reading test and the Writing test.

If you are an extrovert, you may want to spend more time increasing your skills in your area of strength, like the Speaking test.

You know that you need human interaction to absorb concepts or to stay focused so go out and form a study group.

Talk about the strategies with your study group.

Don’t waste time trying to be what you’re not.

If you are an extrovert, don’t block out two hours to study by yourself.

If you are introvert, don’t push yourself to go out and find people to talk to all of the time. Try learning online. You don’t have to use the video and you can do it from home.

What is your personality style?

How does it affect your study plan that you follow?
