Description

The study aimed to investigate the effect of home environment to student personality and student personality to the academic achievement of Grade Ten students in Paniabonan High School, Mabinay District II, Division of Negros Oriental. It specifically aimed to show the profile/home environment of the respondents in terms of parents‟ occupation, birth order, family size, family type and family income; academic achievement; and personality type. It further sought to determine the relationship of the personality types and academic achievement; and profile/home environment and personality types of the respondents. The study utilized one hundred thirty eight Grade 10 students as respondents. Descriptive-correlation design was employed in the study construing mainly personality types to be related to academic achievement. Students‟ profile/home environment was also construed to have a relationship with personality types. Percentage, mean, chi-square and Pearson‟s contingency coefficient were the statistical tools used in the study. Significant findings showed that in terms of parents‟ occupation, majority of the respondents‟ parents are working as laborers and/or any servicing jobs. Their parents‟ occupations are classified as blue-collar jobs. When it comes to birth order, most of the Grade 10 students are middle children in their family. Also, majority of the respondents have small family size (1 to 3 siblings) only. Majority of the students have nuclear type of family. Majority of the respondents belong to the poverty level. A number of Grade 10 students belong to “Approaching Proficiency” level in terms of their academic achievement. Respondents whose dominant personality type falls on agreeableness outnumbered the personality types such as conscientiousness, extraversion, emotional stability/neuroticism and openness, respectively.In general, the study revealed that there is a low degree of relationship between personality type and academic achievement. This means that personality type is not a strong determinant of students‟ academic achievement. Furthermore, home environment in terms of fathers‟ occupation, birth order and birth size has a low association to students‟ personality types. This connotes that the jobs of the fathers, the position of a child in the family and the size of the family somehow affect the personality type of a person. Keywords: personality types, home environment, academic achievement
