Personality Type and Achievement in Reading.
Fillmer, H. Thompson
Research has indicated that there is no teaching method superior to others in promoting reading skills, improving attitudes, or creating interests, and that different types of children evidence varying responses to different methods. Studies such as those of Jung and Myer regarding personality and learning styles provide clues that are useful in identifying the preferences for learning, yet very few studies have investigated the relationship between learning preferences and reading achievement. It has been shown that the choice of instructional methods makes a great difference for certain kinds of pupils, and a search for the best way to teach can succeed only when the learner's personality is taken into account.
