Abstract: 
This study investigated the effects of general personality attributes of extraversion and
introversion, and mental functions of sensing, intuition, thinking and feeling on
mathematics achievement of private high school girls in North Sydney via the MyersBriggs
Type Indicator (Form G). Results of two independent t-tests showed that
extraverted girls had significantly lower mean mathematics scores than introverts.
Subjects who preferred judgmental processes were found to have significantly higher
mean mathematics scores than those who preferred ·perceptive processes. Further
analysis using two 2x2 ANOVAs for modes of perception (sensing-intuition) and
judgment (thinking/feeling) yielded a significant thinking-feeling main effect for
perceptive subjects. There was no significant results for judgmental subjects. No
interaction effect was reported in both cases. Stepwise regression of all independent
variables on mathematics scores in the final analysis indicated that only 14% of
mathematics performance could be explained by the subjects' perceptiveness of the
outer world.
