An Investigation of the Relationship Between Selected Personality Characteristics of Eighth-Grade Students and Their Achievement in Mathematics.
May, Daryle Cline
The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between the sensing and intuitive personality characteristics, as measured by the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), and mathematics achievement in computation, concepts and applications, mathematics attitudes, and intelligence. The 195 eighth-grade students in one junior high school were administered the MBTI, the Stanford Achievement Test, the Dutton Arithmetic Attitude Scale, and the California Test of Mental Maturity. Analysis indicated that the mean score on the three achievement measures and on intelligence was significantly higher for those students classified by the MBTI as sensing than for those classified as intuitive. There was, however, no significant difference on the attitude measure. (Author.MM)
