The article presents study on the prediction of academic success of college students at Hamline University in St. Paul, Minnesota. The author contended that there has been interest in predicting scholastic success by educational researchers such that there has been an elimination of applicants for admission to wiser educational and occupational counseling. There has been an adjustment of the curricula in order that each student may more profitably continue his education. Results have shown that there is a low positive correlation between introversion and college achievement and a low negative correlation between extroversion and college achievement. The best single criterion for college success is the mark made in freshman English.
