      Owino-O, Harriet Nyakecho

Abstract: The aim of this paper is to identify the relationship between personality traits and readiness for learning based on a review of recent literature. The paper, to a large extent, uses literature to appraise the postulations of James Marcia in the Identity Status Theory, which is an extension of the work of the psychologist Erik Erikson. In applying the identity status theory, this paper attempts to explain how personality traits are extensions of identities at different state of formation. Understanding these traits can be instrumental in helping a learner to commit to learning. The author shows that the knowledge of personality style and identity may help a teacher to determine the best methods for teaching different learners. The paper concludes that people learn and teach differently because they are different. Consequently, teachers should endeavour to understand the potential interpersonal frustrations and curtail unnecessary conflicts by creatively adjusting teaching according to the different personalities of learners.
