Khaoula Medjedel

This article aims to discuss the dominant personality type of Arab undergraduates in the field of business then relate the characteristics of those types to the field of study. The contradicted findings of current literature about the dominant personality type in different domains urged the need for such investigations. Besides, most of the existing research examined personality traits in the business workplace, but rarely in the classroom. Therefore, this study discusses which of the personality types: introversion or extraversion is dominant among business students and explains how the underpinning features of those types aid in the business world. The present article describes personality types according to the Myers and Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI). Results revealed that introversion seemed to be the dominant personality type in the given setting. Other related findings are explained and discussed.
