Being motivated to learn characteristics include:

Quick jump to: Curiosity / Self-motivation / Risk taking



Independent learners want to find out more about the world. They show an eagerness to ask questions and explore beyond what is required; discovering, learning and understanding new things. They seek out ways to explore, in different ways, not just traditional instruction. They are proactive and find ways to access additional resources on their own.
Self Motivation


Forget bribery. Your own motivation far surpasses any prize or reward system. Independent learners are motivated by setting individual goals to achieve. They are driven by their own personal achievement.
Risk Taker

Risk taking

Having the courage to take a chance rather than choose the easy option. Trying new challenges and pushing yourself forward to develop new skills, even when success is not guaranteed.
