i remember we were learning about it in psychology - something to do with internal locus of control? i think, and the teacher went into more detail on how many people with an internal locus of control are smart and gave an example of how this guy was smart and enjoyed learning about a specific subject but still did bad in his exams although he enjoyed the topic he was good at the topic but not in the way the exams taught it or not in the way he would need to know for the exams and specification. like people of this type learn more about their interests and what they find interesting but not in the way they need it to pass exams. what is this called specifically? i remember she said it had a specific name for a type of person, and in one of my subjects it gave a similar example of how a guy had a very high IQ but failed in his degree or GPA because he couldn't learn it in the way he needed it to pass exams.
