Van Persie says he has learned a lot from the sort of games Arsenal face in the Premier League.
Van Persie said: "With Arsenal we play a lot of matches in the Premier League where we have to break down a packed defence.
"Away at Blackburn, you need patience. As an Arsenal striker I don't get on the ball for 10 minutes in games like that, while I could be making lots of runs during that time.
"In this World Cup it is exactly the same. You have to be grateful for one or two moments in a game. And then I have to hit the target. But scoring goals is not an obsession for me. If I help the team play well, if I can create things in the box and let others score, I will be just as happy.
"In that way I may think slightly different from other strikers.
"If I get to hold the World Cup in two weeks' time and I have not scored bags of goals, I won't moan."
