What's the meaning of "a self starter"? Thank you.
Sorry to be replying to your inquiry so late, but I just discovered this delightful website.
A "self-starter" is a person so highly motivated to accomplish desired goals that he or she requires little or no supervision or direction to achieve them.

Our guest has given a great explanation. Because of the abovementioned traits, a 'self-starter' starts tasks without being prompted to do so.
It means that they can motivate themselves in a direction. They dont have to be promted by teachers, parents or authorities, but they take intiative.
