Does your personality influence your success as a student? Over 40 years of research using the
Myers-Briggs Type Indicator have shown that personality type is one of a number of factors that affect your choice of career, your learning style,
and your success in certain subjects. The results have been widely applied in career counseling,
executive team building, and education. An understanding of personality type and learning style can make teaching and learning more effective by building on the student's natural strengths and compensating for natural weaknesses. In Russia, the
Soviet regime established a highly effective system of standardized education that extended across the country, and continues today in a modified form. With fewer variables affecting student success, Russia is a great natural laboratory for such research. This study, conducted in collaboration with the Dean and Philological Faculty at Northern
International University in Magadan, explores the relationship between personality type and success for students of English in the Russian Far East.
