ARIES (March 21 - April 19)
"Excitement" should be your middle name because that's what attracts you the most. You latch onto things when they're presented in exciting and interesting ways. Anything that is too cut and dry (AKA boring), you loose interest. You also prefer ideas and conversations that can be summed up pretty quickly. Anything that isn't given to you in sound bites is hard to understand.
TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)
You're a common-sense type of person, always have been and always will be. For you, fact is better than fluff. Anything that isn't based on facts or can't be backed up with proof is hard for you to believe and understand. You especially have a hard time understanding things that are vague or based on rumor or gossip.
GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)
You’re a quick thinker and a quick talker. Everything you process in your mind is done in about half the time as every other sign. But for you, it's just natural. That said, you lack patience and get bored with things that take too long to understand or explain. Things have to be presented in fun, "bullet point" type ways for you to be interested in learning more.
CANCER (June 21 - July 22)
You learn with your heart. The things you understand the best are things based on feelings and intuition. You're the kind of sign that just "knows" when something is going on with someone else, which is why it's easy for you to understand others. Anything that's too factual or doesn't have a personal connection for you is difficult to understand.
LEO (July 23 - August 22)
You learn and understand things best when they’re presented to you in an exciting and attractive way. You're one of the most creatively-inclined signs, so anything that catches your attention in a dramatic, fun way is easy to understand. The things you have a harder time understanding is anything that comes from a lecture with a monotoned speaker... AKA totally boring. You need to be wowed, not put to sleep.
VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)
You have a hard time understanding things that are just too. You're a believer that facts and figures rule all, but when these things lose their simplicity, you're less likely to understand what's going on. You prefer learning things in an efficient way. If you can jot a few notes down and be able to understand the concept of something, you're happy. Anything with too much detail or twists and turns loses and confuses you.
LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)
As someone who is always trying to be the diplomatic sign, you need to be able to weigh all sides of a topic before you can understand it fully. You can't take sides or say you "get" something until you know it completely. You also have a tendency to change your mind all the time. You might think you understand a certain thing at first, but the more you think about it, you'll find yourself changing your opinion.
SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)
You're not the type of person to do anything halfway. In everything you do in life, you have to dive deep into something to really fully understand it. Sometimes you get caught up in all the details though. The reason you can't understand certain things right away is because you're not given enough time to learn all the ins and outs of it. You can't help but get so intense about a topic that its true meaning sometimes can get lost on you.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)
Sagittarius, you’re the opposite of Scorpio. You prefer to know the big idea of something, rather than dive deep into the details. Of course, you never stay with something long enough to understand more than the gist of it. When you can't understand certain things, it's because they're too involved for you. Anything that can't be understood in a few bite-sized bits of information is way too confusing and elaborate.
CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)
You don't have a lot of time for topics that have too much backstory to them. You're a very "straight to the point" kind of person that prefers facts to unnecessary details. You have a hard time understanding things when there's too much detail or not enough detail. You prefer things that are easy to grasp in a short amount of time.
AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)
You don't like wasting your time on things, that are around just for the heck of it. For you, it's hard to understand things that don't have a purpose or a goal to them. If you can't see a reason for people to think a topic is important, then you don't see the point in learning more about it. You like information that has a serious cause attached to it.
PISCES (February 19 - March 20)
You have a tendency to get absorbed in your thoughts and lose track of time when you're trying to understand something new. You don't learn or understand things in a linear sense. You need to let your mind wander so that it can connect the dots on its own. In other words, you need to learn something on your own time. Anything that is too structured and rigid, like a lecture, or anything that isn't abstract enough, not for you. You like something that's presented in a creative way – something that confuses and overwhelms you.
