I was trying to read up on common MBTI's of college biology students, and came across the following article: http://advan.physiology.org/content/262/6/S1.full.pdf
basically it says that college [science, biology] environments are set up for and favor INJ's, somewhat ITJ's, and woah is you if your an EP or heaven forbid a ESP.
For example: "suited for students who are organized (J),
interested in abstract thinking (N), and work effectively
alone (I). Students who prefer to live spontaneously (P),
like to work with practical applications (S), and enjoy
interpersonal interactions (E) are less rewarded by the
college experience. The INJ students clearly have an advantage
over ESP students in the college environment as
it is currently structured."
"as an ESFP type: interested
in working on real problems with other people
rather than on abstract problems in an impersonal
atmosphere. The EP students in this biology course had
the lowest achievement of any personality type. This poor
performance is understandable, since the course structure
favored the IJ types who like to learn by themselves in an
orderly, planned environment."
"ESP students (124.5 points) indicate
that the course favors the person who can work well
alone, is interested in abstract thinking, and is well organized
and motivated. The EP students had the lowest
total points (127.8) of any combination of two types and
also dropped out of the course in the largest numbers."
in CA1 courses favor those who can concentrate by
themselves, pay attention to details, and stay with a single
task until completion, which favors the IJ over the EP
"As currently taught, Human Physiology favors
students who can work efficiently by themselves (I),
live in a planned, orderly way (J), and are interested in
the practical applications of science in their lives (S). The
EP types are especially prone to failure in this course.
Instructors and students should be made aware of the
impact of personality on learning so they can modify
teaching styles and learning behaviors. Science instructors
can use a variety of teaching activities in their
courses to help motivate the different personality types
(3). The EP students especially will need to become more
organized in their study habits and develop their concentration
and reasoning skills. As teachers we need to emphasize
that all personality types are valuable, but the
learning environment in each course may favor one type
over another so that some students will have to modify
their attitudes and study skills if they are to succeed."
