Is Adult Christian Education Mainly for Stable Extraverts?
Francis, Leslie J.; Astley, Jeff; Kay, William K.; Carter, Marian
Studies in the Education of Adults, v29 n2 p191-99 Oct 1997
In a Christian adult study program, 29 men and 32 women completed personality questionnaires. Extraverts were more likely to enjoy group learning and discussion. Because much Christian spirituality emphasizes introversion, group adult education is a way of ministering to extraverts. However, teaching styles and methods to suit other personality types should also be used. (SK)
