Title: The effect of personality type on the use of relevance criteria for purposes of selecting information sources
Abstract: Problem. Even though information scientists generally recognize that relevance judgments are multidimensional and dynamic, there is still discussion and debate regarding the degree to which certain internal (cognition, personality) and external (situation, social relationships) factors affect the use of criteria in reaching those judgments. Much of the debate centers on the relationship of those factors to the criteria and reliable methods for measuring those relationships. This research is an attempt to answer two specific questions: (1) What relationship exists between personality type and use of relevance criteria? (2) What relationship exists between personality type and information source selection?
