among age groups' perception of the tasks in the adult life
cycle. For internal consistency, reliability estimates
ranged from .83 to .94 for the subsections of the ADLI.
Stage III of the investigation explored the relation-
ship between the ADLI and personality as measured by the
Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) which was based on the
typology suggested by Carl Jung. The findings suggested
only limited relationships between personality and the
extent of learning activities. Specifically adults with the
dominant function of Intuition can be categorized as high
activity learners. The results of limited relationships
between learning and personality type can perhaps be attrib-
uted to the fact that overwhelmingly (98%) these adult
samples were involved in some type of learning not in spite
of their life circumstances but because of them.
