Personality Type and Student Performance in Principles of Economics

Mary O. Borg and Stephen L. Shapiro

The Journal of Economic Education, 1996, vol. 27, issue 1, 3-25

Abstract: The relationship between students' personality types, as measured by the Myers-Briggs Personality Type Indicator, and their performance in introductory economics is explored. In addition to comparing a student's learning style with a professor's teaching style, options are suggested for improving instruction by offering a variety of different teaching and grading strategies that better accommodate student personality types and learning styles.
