Learning to use new technologies appears effortless for some students and laborious for others. This observation led to the hypothesis that "technology intelligence" may partially explain these observed differences. To explore this hypothesis, 4 classes of undergraduate Education students took online Myers-Briggs (MBTI) and multiple intelligence inventories. Results of the study indicated a relationship between Myers-Briggs type, bodily-kinesthetic intelligence and interpersonal intelligence. "Intuitors" on the MBTI reported more satisfaction in using technology.
