  • When it comes to personality types especially extroversion and its counterpart introversion, people always think that extroversion are outgoing, open-minded, talkative and sociable while introversion are shy, quiet, non-talkative and unsociable. Extroverts with these personality characteristics are more willing to try new things and learn from mistakes. That’s why people think that extroverts have better English proficiency because of their attempts, which is so called a stereotype.
  • There’re 8 classes in the department of applied foreign languages. Only one class will be picked randomly.
  • 93 items 問卷信效度??? Information? 对于一个心理测量量表,其效度证据可以来自多方面,但最根本的是结构效度。如果量表是基于已有的理论模型,验证其结构效度最常用的方法是实证性因素分析。根据我们约 120 万份样本数据分析,样本数据和理论模型拟合良好 (AGFI 和 NNFI 分别为 0.978 和 0.997) 。 (statisticals) GFI(goodness-of-fit index) 及 AGFI(adjusted GFI) :兩者均是契合度指標, GFI 與 AGFI 愈接近 1 ,表示模型契合度越高,一般以 .90 為界限。 NFI(normed fit index) 與 NNFI(non-normed fit index) :這兩種指標是利用比較原理所計算出來的相對性指標,指標愈接近 1 ,表示模型契合度越高,一般以 .90 為界限。

    11. 11. What is personality? Personality is the type of person you are, which is shownby the way you behave, feel and think.(Sharma, 2008)Personality is defined as the sum total of our mental,emotional, social and physical characteristics thatdistinguishes us from others. They are what make us theunique person we are.(Yusoff, Rahim, &11
    12. 12. Definitions of Personality12(Fiske et al., 1949)ExtraversionThis trait includes characteristics such asexcitability, sociability, talkativeness,assertiveness and high amounts ofemotional expressiveness.
    13. 13. The notion of extroversion and introversionExtroverts are always regarded as “life of the party” person;in contrast, introverts are thought of as quite and reserved,with tendencies toward reclusiveness. Unfortunately, thesestereotypes have influenced teacher’s perceptions ofstudents, e.g., teachers always admire the talkative,outgoing students who participates freely in classdiscussions, rather than introverts who are sometimesthought of not being smart.(Brown, 1994) 13
    14. 14. Extroverted-introverted vs. English proficiencyMany SLA theorists claimed that extroverts are the betterlanguage learners.(Shahila & Meenakshi, 2012)Introverts actually have higher English proficiency thanthe extroverted learners, which is not what she expected.(Busch, 1982)14
    15. 15. Research GapEven there were some researchers focused onstudents’ English proficiency and extroversion-introversion factors, e.g., Busch’s study; still,there were very few research conducted in Asian,especially in Taiwan.15
