Abstract:

We investigated the influence that personality type has on perceptual learning style preference and language learning strategies. Participants were 364 senior high school students in Taiwan who were studying English as a foreign language. The instruments used to collect data were the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (Myers & McCaulley, 1985), the Perceptual Learning Preferences Survey (adapted from Kinsella's 1995 survey), and the Strategy Inventory for Language Learning (Oxford, 1990). Results showed significant relationships between language learning strategy and the introverted/extroverted personality type. Significant relationships were also found between the sensing/intuitive personality type and memory, compensation, social, and metacognitive strategies.
