P. Zimmerman, R. G. Johnson, T. S. Hoover, J. W. Hilton, P. H. Heinemann, D. R. Buckmaster ABSTRACT. This study investigated differences in learning styles and personality types among engineering students, agricultural systems management students, and faculty in the Department of Agricultural and Biological Engineering at Pennsylvania State University. Learning styles and personality types were evaluated using the Group Embedded Figures Test (GEFT) and Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), respectively . Mean values for the GEFT for all three groups indicated a strong preference for the field-independent learning style. There were no significant differences in MBTI type preferences between engineering students and faculty. However, the agricultural systems management students differed significantly (p < 0.05) from faculty in their preference for Perceiving and from engineering students in their preference for Sensing. Results of the study are useful in helping faculty better understand and improve the teaching and learning process involving the two groups of students. Keywords. GEFT, Learning styles, MBTI, Personality type. he Department of Agricultural and Biological En- gineering at Pennsylvania State University offers two majors: Agricultural and Biological Engineer- ing (ABE), and Agricultural Systems Management (ASM). The ABE major is the professional engineering pro- gram and prepares students for careers in engineering. The ASM major prepares students for careers in agribusiness and integrates coursework in engineering technology, business management, and agricultural science. ABE and ASM de- partmental courses include similar subject matter and em- phasize engineering principles and theory; however, there is less focus on engineering design and more emphasis on sys- tem analysis, functional planning, and applications in the ASM courses. With few exceptions, departmental faculty teach both ABE and ASM courses. Most of these individuals have engineering
