The purpose of this project is to determine how students with specific learning styles have performed at Worcester Polytechnic Institute. The study is conducted using the class of 2002 and 2003 Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI). The psychological instrument was administered during each classes' freshman orientation and performance data was requested by us from the WPI's Registrar. The MBTI is a world-renowned, but controversial personality test that has been around for over a half-century and has been used in hundreds of studies.
