    Default Best teachers type or relation

    I can't find my old thread on this topic. Do you think a certain type is the best teacher?

    Do you think a certain relation is best for teaching?

    From what I've read is your identical the best teacher.

    If we look at types, then probably an ENFJ would be the best elementary teacher, INTP / ENTP best professor. I have no clue who would be the best highschool teacher...

    identical yes. dual no.

    Dual is good for critisizing your behaviour, not for teaching.

    Duality is effective because the student is naturally receptive to the kind of input the teacher will have.
    True

    I guess it also depends what needs to be teached.

    my two favourite professors during university were an INTp-Ni female (History of the Enlightenment), and an ENTp male (Classical Studies), both were in their sixties. In fact I think that age had more to do with whether I enjoyed a professor than type. For example with another INTp female professor I had, who had just begun teaching and was really young, I couldn't stand her or her methods. She was strict about stupid things and in my mind seemed evidently immature and not knowing of what she was doing. Indeed I found similar "immaturity" (relative of course) generally more common in younger professors. They'd enforce harsh penalties for missing deadlines and in general take themselves too seriously. I think what it all comes down to is wisdom. Wisdom is something I don't have as I'm young, but neither do other young people. Being older does not necessarily make a person wise but when it does it's a wonderful thing to behold. A teacher that possesses wisdom looks at you and treats you differently, it's almost as if they immediately know more about you than you could ever put into words. They've taught students for years and years and years, so I suppose it makes sense that they'd have developed their own intuitive system to decipher students (kind of like socionics, they've seen different types appearing again and again in their classes, throughout the years, and acknowledged the patterns of behaviour). They also seem resoundingly able to judge you properly according to what you've actually learned in their class and how you comprehended such learning (vs. what you're able to regurgitate/your punctuality etc.)

    I've learned more from my INTj dad than from anyone else. But maybe because he's a genius.

    Among mines, the best teachers I've had were ILIs. However, it wasn't type related: they were thought about as best teachers by everybody in the class. I suspect that being a good teacher doesn't have much to do with what kind of relationship you have with the person.
