Learning Strategy Preference and Personality Type: Are They Related?
Conti, Gary J.; McNeil, Rita C.
Journal of Adult Education, v40 n2 p1-8 2011
This study investigated the relationship of learning strategy preference to personality type. Learning strategy preference was identified with the "A"ssessing "T"he "L"earning Strategies of "A"dult"S" (ATLAS), and personality type was measured with the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI). The findings indicate that while overall personality type is not related to learning strategy preference, three of the four indicators of personality type show a relationship to learning strategy preference. Consequently, while stereotypes cannot be made to link approaches to learning with overall personality types, certain personality traits can be indicators of how one might be approaching learning tasks.
