Abstract

The success of second language learning including learning speaking depends on the supportive contribution of affective variables, cognitive variables, pedagogical variable and environmental language-relevant variables. Personality as the affective variables is said to have significant effect in learning speaking. Extrovert students that consist of Sanguine and Choleric types are believed to be better in speaking than extrovert students that consist of Melancholy and Phlegmatic types. Based on the background above, this ex post facto study tries to answer the question: "Do personality types have significant effect on the English speaking achievement of English Department students of Widya Mandala Catholic University?" The subjects of this study are all the third semester students in the academic year 2001-2002 who have passed Speaking A and do not have combined personality. Altogether the number of subjects in this study is 68 students. They are classified into 4 personality types of Hippocrates based on their personality tests and their English speaking achievement is represented by their Speaking A scores. After the data obtained was analyzed, the writer found out that personality types have no significant effect on the English speaking achievement of English Department students of Widya Mandala Catholic University. Some reasons were: (1) the students did not do the personality test seriously, (2) the number of the subjects is not adequate. (3) the success of second language learning does not merely depend on students' personality types and (4) the Speaking A final grades do not significantly represent the students' speaking achievement.
