Abstract

The purpose of the study is to analyse difference of study achievement in course related to anatomy by personality type and to suggest application plan for anatomy education. We conducted a survey of 344 of the junior class in 2009, 2010, 2011 to get the results of MBTI personality type test and of courses related to anatomy And then, we analysed those results. As a result, personality type was similar to the distribution of the korean university students and the general public. But there was no difference in study achievements by personality type. We concluded that we should not predict study achievement by using personality type. And we should recognize personality types only as personality traits to utilize for student guidance, study guidance, effective teaching-learning method etc.
