Abstract: The learning style of students and teaching style of faculty within a college of business was assessed utilizing the Myers-Briggs Type Inventory. Professors were more likely to teach in an "intuitive" manner, whereas more students wanted to learn in a "sensing" style. The level of learning style-teaching style congruency was related to academic performance and to student evaluations of the course and the instructor. Differences in these evaluations were significant, while differences in course grades, which di… Show more

“…Similar cognitive styles have been found to be associated with mutual positive attitudes between parties in a relationship (Cooper & Miller, 1991), satisfaction with the relationship (Cooper & Miller, 1991;Handley, 1982), and effective interpersonal relations (Handley, 1982). Turban and Jones, (1988) observed that when employees perceive their manager as having similar characteristics to themselves, they are more likely to feel more confidence and trust in the manager, furthermore, they reported to be clearer about their roles.…”

“…Although there are some disagreements between earlier (Cooper & Miller, 1991;Handley, 1982;Turban & Jones, 1988) and more recent (Allinson et al, 2001;Armstrong et al, 2004;Glomb & Welsh, 2005;KristofBrown et al, 2005) studies on whether similarity of cognitive style will lead to better communication satisfaction or whether a manager with a certain cognitive style will be preferred by all employees regardless of employee cognitive style match or mismatch, or whether a complimentary cognitive style where differences will improve the communication satisfaction, in the high context cultural environment that we conducted our study, we expect that similarity will lead to improved communication satisfaction. Therefore, we hypothesize that:…”

“…Cooper and Miller [7] reported that the level of learning style/teaching style congruency is related to academic performance and to student evaluations of the course and instructor. Additionally, the existence of the discrepancy between students' preferences of learning in a concrete manner (S style) and faculty's penchant to teach in abstractions (N style) appears to contribute to student dissatisfaction as indicated by the course and instructor evaluations.…”

“…Additionally, the MBTI is not necessarily valid across different domains (Noe, 1999). For example, a study by Cooper and Miller (1991) found that students were primarily sensors while professors taught in an intuitive style, but did not find that in-class teacher/student congruity led to higher grades.…”
