Do athletic teams, fraternities, and MQP groups attract the same psychological types?

By Bryan A. Tremblay, Eric Nathan Thiboutot, Jerome Stuart Hunter and Philip Montague Trainor


This project has evolved from the data mining and analysis of WPI\u27s transfer students Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) information to the hypothesis that every grouping of students contains a unique ration of the sixteen MBTI types that differ from the general student body. Due to the difficulty of administering the MBTI tests of transfer students, which routinely takes place during freshman orientation, it became evident that the projects objective needed to be changed. The new direction of the project studies the MBTI ratio\u27s of such student groupings as varsity athletics, fraternal organizations, and the project groups of both WPI and Boston University
