The Relationship of Psychological Type and a Student’s Choice of a Jesuit Business School
Anna Carol Lampe

Abstract
The purpose of this research was to explore the hypotheses that Jesuit universities attract more “feeling” students than do public universities and, furthermore, that Jesuit university business schools attract more “feeling” students than do public university business schools. Participants (N=200) were students at the Helzberg School of Management at Rockhurst University, a Jesuit university in Kansas City, Missouri and students represented in raw data (N=9000) provided by the Center of Psychological Type (CAPT). The data failed to validate the hypotheses. The author explores the possibility that studentsmay choose to attend Jesuit universities not because they are hard-wired as “feelers” but based on a need to be in an environment that supports their tightly held religious beliefs.
