An Online Personality Test and the Writing Process

Duke University suggests a unique approach to teaching writing: How Personality Affects Your Writing Process. Students take a Kiersey Temperment Test, and then check their score against a “Your Personality Test and Writing” chart. The chart gives suggestions – for example, extroverts may benefit from bouncing ideas off of others.

While this tool should certainly not be used as a handbook for how to approach writing, it’s an interesting way to get students thinking about how their tendencies affect their writing style.
