In general, are you a fast or slow learner?

When you learn something new - does it take you a while to grasp it, or do you absorb and retain what you learn very quickly?In general, are you a fast or slow learner?

  • Both lol. At first I seem like I’m a complete retard. But after a certain point I gain mastery over things super fast. I kind of hate it. If people see me right at the start, they will think I’m stupid. But if they stick around a bit longer, they think I’m a genius and people get jealous. I hate when people think I’m better than them. I’m not. I’m just a nerd who loves to learn. I’m curious as fuck and I want to know everything. That’s all I think it is. Really I’m a dumb fuck, but I know so much shit that I’m able to connect a lot of things and that helps me. I don’t know lol. When I was a kid I was always the best in class, except for the one actual genius kid who would just shit on everyone ya know? So I was like top 1% while the actual genius kids were like.01% if that makes sense.

    I don’t know what to think of myself reallly. Sometimes I feel like a complete retard. But that will offend people who think of me as smarter than them. But I don’t think I am.

  • It depends on the subject and how interested I am in it but generally I pick up on new concepts fairly quickly. It depends a lot on the teacher too though, assuming someone is helping me and I'm not learning on my own.

  • I can learn very quickly if the task is something that I can practice. As for things that don't happen to often, it will take me a considerably long period of time. I'm not a genius, I just work hard when presented with a new challenge and practice until I've mastered it, so if I can't practice it then I can't learn as quickly.

    • I really am a slow learner. It takes me a while to understand directions, instructions and concepts a triple threat.

  • I am incredibly fast at learning and mastering new things. For example, I had never painted before in my life. But within 4 months, I was painting at almost Bob Ross' level. Which is astonishingly fast.
    Math is the one exception, there's no hope for me there.

  • Fast learner when
    -Learning something is required on my job
    -It's within my interest

    Slow learner when
    -Trying to learn something I may not use in the foreseeable future
    -Trying to make me learn something I'm not interested with
    -By having a boring and/or bad teacher/instructor.

  • That depends on what I am learning.
    I am great at math and science. But I do poorly in grammar and history. Also languages. I can pick up small phrases easily. But I can't learn a whole language much at all.

  • I like to take my time at the beginning so I can digest all the details and see how they fit together.. there's a saying in the Army "Slow is smooth, smooth is fast" Take your time and understand what you're doing. Before you know it, you'll be extremely proficient at what you're learning.

  • I am an average learner. I tend to absorb knowledge rather quickly, but it takes me a little while to apply the knowledge, and to be comfortable/confident in doing it.

  • Depends on the subject. If it is history, I can read through it three times and ace an exam 6 months later about it.

    If it's biology, it requires much more practice and time on my part.

  • Depends on what it is I'm learning.
    Usually I pick up sports and games really fast. Playing instruments (the basics) too. But I think that's partly because I have learned to play the piano at a young age (so I'm pretty good at that)

    But in school, I'm definetely a slow learner
