This paper discusses how the learning and memory process can differ dramatically between two people, even those who are similar. The paper presents a personal narrative regarding the writer's personality compared to that of her best friend. It presents the results of an interview that revealed that two people who seem similar on the surface can have very different cognitive approaches. The paper contains a copy of the interview in an appendix.

From the Paper:

"We were also surprised to discover that our results on the Myers Briggs personality inventory were different, because people oftentimes describe us as "two peas in a pod." However, while my friend is an INTJ, I am an ENFP. Those results suggest that we approach some things in a very different manner. My friend is more likely to be introverted and display logic to the outside world, while I am more likely to be extroverted and perceived as more touchy-feely. The odd thing is that both of us felt that our results were accurate, though my friend stated that she felt that others might not agree with her results. Both of us appear to be extroverts, but we learned that the distinction between introvert and extrovert is not based on someone's social skills, but on someone's preferences."
