The Relation Between Personality Type and Learning Style of Higher Education Students

Authors : Tania Pretorius

Abstract: The role of personality and learning style of students is an area that attracts research due to the high value and central role of academic excellence in the community. An investigation was done on students through an online personality test and a learning style instrument to determine if there is a relation between the personality and learning styles of the students who have enrolled at university. The data identified an Extravert, Intuitive, Feeling, Judging (ENFJ) personality type for the group and the group’s learning style is Active, Sensing, Visual Sequential (ASVS). The data indicated a relation between the Extrovert Personality type and the Active Learning style; the Feeling Personality type and the Visual Learning style and the Judging Personality type and the Sequential Learning style. Knowledge about learning styles and personality types is a new fundamental tool at the service of universities. Universities may utilize theses tools to provide thoughtful and deeper insights into students than have been previously utilized which will result in the best possible dividends for the university, students and the final consumer (employers).
