This study aimed to examine the skill of student participants with regard to understanding Java code by reading it via a 'code comprehension task', as well as their skill in making 'sign-like decisions' via a 'design matrix task'. The aim was to ascertain any relationships between these abilities and participants' personality as measured by the MBTI test. Relationships were also examined with the cognitive style of Fielc Dependence or Field Independence. Relationships with background information were also examined.
