The purpose of this study was to assess whether extraversion-introversion is related to spatial intelligence. First-year psychology students (58 men, 108 women) in an open-admission community college responded to a battery of black and white and color spatial ability tests, and the Eysenck Personality Inventory. As hypothesized, a small but significant relationship was found between scores on extraversion and on the SEK Test (colored spatial test). Gender differences in performance on the spatial tests favored males. Scores on three of the Spatial Dimensionality Tests correlated significantly with those on the SEK Test. Recommendations include investigating the effect of a variety of spatial problems in combination with other personality variables.
