Abstract

This paper investigates the impact of personality (openness
to experience, emotional stability and self-esteem) on the selection of
learning activities. We ran six focus groups. The research findings showed
a clear impact of these personality traits on the selection of the next
learning activity. Personality influenced the selection of both the type
and quantity of required prior knowledge and the type and quantity
of knowledge taught. Personality also influenced the other learner and
learning activity characteristics that should be considered.
