Teachers have long been aware of the relationship between the learner's personality and his achievement in a foreign language. The aim of this article is to give an impression of the kind of research into this relationship that has been going on for some time at the Institute of Applied Linguistics of the University of Groningen.In the first section the notion 'aspect of cognitive style' is introduced. In the next section four such aspects are discussed and their possible relationships to the grammatical and communicative skills gone into. In section 3 a brief look is taken at the tests and at the sample groep used to test the hypothetical relationships. In the final section some tentative conclusions are drawn.
