Realist

Realists are usually interested in 'things' - such as buildings, mechanics, equipment, tools, electronics etc. Their primary focus is dealing with these - as in building, fixing, operating or designing them. Involvement in these areas leads to high manual skills, or a fine aptitude for practical design - as found in the various forms of engineering.

Realists like to find practical solutions to problems using tools, technology and skilled work. Realists usually prefer to be active in their work environment, often do most of their work alone, and enjoy taking decisive action with a minimum amount of discussion and paperwork.

How to Study Better

At school we spend most of the time learning about stuff - but rarely do we spend any time learning how to learn! Would it not be a good idea to learn a few shortcuts to shorten the time required to study, and increase the amount of learning at the same time?

Good grades in exams open more possibilities for your future, as there will be a greater selection of college courses to choose from, or jobs that you will be eligible for. That's why it matters for your future career.

We have collected a number of Videos that contain very useful tips to help you, along with a Study Skills Test and worksheets to help you focus on your study behaviour.





"My dream job would be working with children with learning difficulties on a one-to-one basis giving them the time and resources needed to improve their learning."
