The Effects of Physical Activity and Personality Style on Academic Performance

Course PSY 480: Original Research Project


I became interested in the effect that exercise has on different individuals almost immediately after I discovered that I wanted to be a Physical Therapist. The interesting thing about this research is that it has a twist. Most researchers report that exercise is good for everyone without acknowledging the effects of different personalities. I have learned a lot about introverts and extroverts and their arousal levels from researching. I get very excited when I discover something new and I have been discovering a lot from this study.
