dc.description.abstract Research suggest that personality is a strong predictor of academic achievement at school level and beyond, but also at societal level as it serves as the building blocks to future success and economic advancement. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of personality traits on academic performance in the subjects of English and Mathematics at grade 9 level. It also aimed to contribute to the limited research done on this topic specifically in Namibia. Personality traits were compared to participants’ academic performance in term 1 in the subjects of English and Mathematics. Results indicated that there was no statistically significant relationship between personality traits and performance in English. The personality traits of Thinking, Sensing and Perception showed statistical significance to performance in Mathematics, whereas the personality traits of Feeling, Intuition and Judgement showed no statistical significance to performance in Mathematics. This information may inform teaching approaches and could also be beneficial to Educational Psychologist as it could partially explain why some learners do not perform in Mathematics. en_US
