dc.description.abstract A study of 96 students at the Islamic University of Gaza was designed to determine whether there is a difference in extroversion and neuroticism between high achieving and low achieving students, and whether there is a difference in extroversion and neuroticism due to sex. The Eysenck Personality Inventory was used to measure extroversion and neuroticism; academic achievement, high or low, was determined by students' grades at the University.The results of a two-way analysis of variance indicated that there was no significant difference in extroversion due to academic achievement, nor was there any significant difference in extroversion due to sex.Another two-way analysis of variance indicated that there was no significant difference in neuroticism due to academic achievement; however, female students did measure significantly higher than male students in neuroticism.
