4 Types of Students
From Pirke Avot (Lesson's of the Fathers) :
"There are four types among those who sit before the wise: the Sponge, the Funnel, the Strainer, and the Sieve. Some are like the sponge which absorbs everything; some are like the funnel which takes in at one end and lets out at the other; some are like the strainer which allows the wine to go out and retains the dregs; some are like the sieve which lets out the bran and retains the fine flour."
