March 16, 2012
After attending the session on reading and note taking I feel significantly motivated on certain aspects of the way in which I go about these activities and I'm going to act on that by formulating a plan and seeing how that goes for next few weeks.
1. During my revision in subjects requiring a lot of note taking eg economics i'm going to use Cornell system as I found it particularly beneficialespecially when i'm working at my own pace.
2. During these periods of study I'm going to keep a seperate rough sheet of paper down next to me to write notes telling me how i can organize as I go along or something i'm having particular problems with.
3. I'm going to use to maximum affect the sticky notes given to me. Although i think I'm going to have to buy a bigger pad as theyre fairly small and cool with the tissue box and everything. However, they will be used to mark out the points of importance in notes (eg proofs that could come up in exam). Ill come up with some other things probably.
Another week gone by and the time for another reflective entry has come.
I have just completed a half module assesment with a gruelling few days in the learning Grid and library. During that time a lot of the people I talked to whom I also knew i noticed a change in. I noticed that wheh they were focused on that goal of finishing their project I noticed that they became more introvertive.
Thats not me bmaking things up. I'm actually genuinely truthful about this. I believe that sometimes intense periods of focus can cause people to radically alter themselves; it varies with each person. Through this experience I've both learnt how to categorise people and also the shifting dynamics of this topic.
As for a particular one of my friends (who has done the Portfolio Award) I talked to him on the topic and we had some intense discussion which was unfortunately interupted. However, I noticed that he also was of the mind that your personality is ever shifting and through that we came to know even more about each other than we previously did. He told me a few things (which I'm not going to mention because I have great respect for him) that I didnt know. THis was someone I considered my inner circle.
Its interesting to see how different MBTI types interact and the means in which they interact. I look forward to my final entry to conclude all these thoughts and experiences.
