Abstract

In order to provide successful instruction, teachers need to learn to identify and understand their students’ individual differences. A feature of individual differences, which enters almost every area of life is that of personality type. This can be assessed with an instrument know as the Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) (Briggs Myers, 1998). This article will identify MBTI preferences among a group of Chinese university students studying English in Hong Kong sand suggest that a knowledge of personality type is important for both teacher and student in maximizing learning success. Brief comments will be offered comparing results with other MBTI studies in Chinese contexts.
