Intrapersonal learners

An intrapersonal learner is someone who prefers working alone, which is the exact opposite of an ‘interpersonal learner’. These are self-motivated learners that like to set individual goals, and prefer to study by themselves with their own thoughts and ideas rather than with others that intrude on those thoughts. They are very self-aware of their own strength and weaknesses and may have very high self-management skills. This learning style is also termed ‘solitary learning style’.

Suitable teaching and learning activities

  • Learning contracts
  • Independent study (provide resources as books, websites, videos)
  • Allow learners to set goals and tasks for themselves
  • Allow learners to study quietly and free from distractions
