This report describes the investigation of the currently open question of whether or not there is a link between a person's MBTI personality preference and their performance on a specialized battery of cognitive ability tests, the Woodcock-Johnson IIIR Tests of Cognitive Abilities. The study focuses on analysis of a sample of 32 people who took both measures. Correlational analysis and significance tests were used to test hypotheses about which dimensions of the two measures would be related to one another.
