The Relationship between the Myers-Briggs Personality Types and Learning Styles.
Brownfield, Kelley M.
The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is introduced. Some historical background and an overview of preference and types are given. Applications of the MBTI are discussed, focusing on educational issues concerning the study of learning styles. Learning styles are defined according to D. H. Kalsbeek, G. Lawrence, and others. Each dichotomous (two-sided) preference scale is discussed as to the aspect of learning style it measures, each having a unique importance in the relation of the MBTI to learning style. Each dichotomy's learning style characteristics are discussed, and an illustration is given as an example of how each type's learning style can be assessed. The MBTI measures not only personality type, but also each type's way of most effectively learning new material. The benefits of such knowledge are numerous. (Contains 9 references.) (Author/SLD)
