Effect of Personality Traits on Collaborative and Competitive Learning Styles at University Level
The present research aims to investigate the impact of personality features on collaborative and competitive learning. The Big Five Theory used to examine the impact of personality traits on learning styles. Four hundred students were randomly selected using the non-probability (comfort) sampling technique for this descriptive research design. Large-scale inventory and Gasha-Riechmann student learning skills scales were used after translation in the national language. Cronbach Alpha assured the validity of the instrument by offering expert opinion and pilot testing and reliability where all reliability of the questionnaire was established (α = 0.92). Resultantly, students’ personality traits were more inclined toward collaborative style rather than the competitive style of learning, and correlation was found strongly significant between five factors and learning styles. Teaching style in accordance with individual differences and learning styles may strengthen students. Students’ social training, academic adjustment, and collaborative opportunities rooted personality traits and learning.
