Abstract

This paper aims at exploring the relation between personality types and learning strategies and how a successful match of these could build on the way learners learn a second language. For this reason, it indicatively analyzes the learning features attributed to a particular type of learner personality identified with the author, namely the Extravert Sensing Feeling Perceiving learner, as determined by the Myers Brigg’s personality type indicator. Then, it attempts to provide a justified theoretical context of what kind of learning strategies would most appropriately cater for such a learner. Finally, it presents two representative activities of how an ESFP learner could be treated or trained how to treat himself/herself in the process of second language learning.
