This project is an investigation into the potential correlation between intelligence and personality. A dataset of 60 individuals that have taken both the Woodcock-Johnson III intelligence test, and the MBTI personality preference test, has been compiled and analyzed. As flaws were found in the methodology of previous study teams, the current, larger, dataset has been used to retest the previous teams' hypotheses as well as our own. The additional cases were able to produce findings at a statistically significant level.
