Exploration of Personality Preferences Between College Students and College Student Athletes

Miniaci Performing Arts Center

The goal of this research study was to explore whether there existed differences in personality preferences between college non-student-athletes and college student-athletes. Participants were given the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), which is a personality survey with questions relating to general perceptions about oneself. The researchers handed out surveys to students in their school environment and asked them to fill out the questionnaire. The 93-question survey took around 10 to 20 minutes for each person to fill out. 90 undergraduate students at Nova Southeastern University completed the MBTI, 41 of which were student-athletes and 49 of which were non-student-athletes. t- tests were used to calculate significance on each of the main areas of personality dimension. No statistically significant differences were found.
