The purpose of this study was to test if Myers-Briggs type impacted on Resident Assistant effectiveness at UW-La Crosse. This study used a Resident Assistant evaluation completed by the residents of each residence hall and the Myers-Briggs Type Inventory taken by each Resident Assistant. Both of these instruments were administered during the fall semester of the 1986-1987 academic year. There were 94 possible participants for this study. The study sample was composed of 84 Resident Assistants, 35 men and 49 women. Results indicated that Myers-Briggs type impacted on two aspects of Resident Assistant effectiveness. Sensing types were found to be more effective than intuitive types in the area of helping/advising. In the area of programming, feeling types were found to be more effective than thinking types.
