The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationships among personality types, self-efficacy,
resilience in pre-service early childhood teacher. The subjects of this study were 226 women college
students who majored in early childhood education in Chonbuk. The instruments used for this study
were the MBTI(Form G), the Self-Efficacy Scale, Resilience Scale. The results of this study were as
follows: First, resilience of pre-service early childhood teachers was significantly different depending on
grades and satisfaction level in school life. Furthermore, the pre-service early childhood teacher who
have religion displayed higher resilience than the pre-service teachers who don't have religion. Second,
extroversion(E) showed higher self-efficacy and resilience than Introversion(I) types. Judging(J) types also
displayed higher in self-efficacy and resilience than Perceiving(P) types. However there were no
significant differences in self-efficacy and resilience between Sensing(S)-iNtuition(N), and Thinking(T)-
Feeling(F) types. And SJ, NF were higher self-efficacy and resilience than SP on the temperamental
personality types. There was also significant positive correlations between self-efficacy and resilience.
Finally, the results of regression analysis on resilience indicated that self-efficacy, judging(J),
extroversion(E) type were significant predictors of resilience. These results support that self-efficacy,
judging(J), extroversion(E) type are needed for improving resilience.
