The Four Adult Learning Personalities

There are four distinct adult learning personalities, these personalities dictate what motivates students to learn. Below is a breakdown of each learning personality as well as a short explanation of how our eLearning content assists in motivating them

Personal Development

Individuals with a personal development learning personality are driven by their need to better themselves and develop new skills. We motivate these learners by enabling them to track their learning progress as well as providing them with the tools to set learning goals and receive achievements for reaching their goals. Certificates of completion can also be generated as proof of their learning journey.


Competitive learning personalities are motivated through friendly competitiveness within their learning community. The best way to motivate these learners is through implementing a structure into the LMS known as gamification. Gamification makes use of a points system, leaderboards, badges and awards to motivate learners to compete against each other within their learning journey.


Affiliation personalities are motivated through the learning community, the betterment of all learners as a unit and reaching a collective learning goal. We motivate these types of learners by setting up learning forums wherein learners are able to assist one another with difficult learning topics and interact with one another during their learning journey.


Completionist personalities are motivated by completing their eLearning courses in full. We motivate these learners by including milestones and achievements awarded as they complete the relevant modules. We also make use of the same progress tracking tools to ensure that they know how far they are from reaching key milestones.
