2) Share and Gain- Whenever you learn about a new subject, or a new topic, discuss it with people around you. They can be your friends, family, classmates, colleagues, anyone that you are comfortable talking to. When we share what we learn, there is 50% more chance of retaining that information. When you share information, you may get a new outlook on that subject from another person, as everyone has a different point of view. This will also help in generation of new ideas.

 

 

 

3) Identify your Learning style- There are three types of learning styles-

4) Talk less, Listen More- When learning about something new, it is important to listen carefully and ask questions in the end to clarify all your doubts relating to the subject. Asking questions is a sign of intelligence and you should never be hesitant to ask one in case of any clarification.
