Relationship among Personality Traits, Extraversion & Agreeableness with Students Preferred Learning Styles at Higher Education
This correlational study has been conducted to establish association among students’ personality traits; extraversion, agreeableness and their preferred learning styles at Higher Education. From province Punjab, all public university students were the population of the study. Total one thousand participants were engaged randomly for administering ‘NEO-BFI’ developed by Costa and McCrae (2010) and LSI inventory by Kolb and Kolb, (2005) simultaneously. Both instruments are standardized having 44-items, for measuring personality traits and the other having 10 factors, for measuring learning styles respectively. Pearson correlation coefficient was applied to analyze data for finding out the relationship between traits of personality and styles of learning. The results brought to light the fact that assimilating is the most preferred learning style of extraverts. Whereas assimilating, accommodating and diverging learning styles are preferred by students having agreeableness personality trait. The study has implications for designing instructional strategies satiating the most preferred styles of students having different personality traits.
