Personality Influences on Student and Cooperating Teacher Attitudes Toward Teaching.
Austin, Terri L.; Cage, Bob N.
This investigation related Jungian personality types of student and cooperating teachers to their attitudes and student teacher evaluations. A random sample of 124 pairs of student teachers and cooperating teachers was used. Each participant was administered the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) and the Minnesota Teacher Attitude Inventory (MTAI). Analyses that matched the extroverted-introverted and the sensing-intuitive personality indices showed that student teacher ratings were similar regardless of the personality type of the cooperating teacher. Expressed teacher attitude (MTAI) was shown to vary significantly across personality preferences (MBTI). In both the student teacher and the cooperating teacher samples, intuitive and feeling types were significantly more positive than any other subgroups. (Authors/FG)
