This study investigated whether personality differences, as measured by the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, of 349 graduate school students were associated with computer affinity, an attraction toe the study and use of computers. A computer affinity index was created to measure a student's degree of computer affinity. Analysis was performed to see if there were any significant differences on personality dimensions between the respondents, and to explore the relationship between these differences and computer affinity. The results revealed no significant differences between personality types and affinity for computers. The findings also revealed a common personality type for respondents who showed an interest in computers.
