To establish a good interaction between lecturer and the students of architecture in the design studio, it is essential to pay attention to the students’ personalities and traits. The difference in students’ traits demands educational methods tailored to them. Some lecturers of architecture, implicitly and practically, concentrate on the diversity and difference of traits in each student, while others apply the same single rule to all students during talking and drawing. This paper intends to highlight one of the important characteristics of the students of architecture, namely extraversion and introversion, as a key concern in the educational difference. Having a degree of extroversion and introversion, every human being is located in a spectrum whose ends are absolute extroversion and introversion. Due to the superiority of one of these two over the other one, a person is termed introvert or extrovert. The fundamental question is, “what effect does the extroversion or introversion of a student of architecture bring to the design process and what should the lecturer of architecture do in each case?” The research methodology of this paper is descriptive, comparative, and analytical. Relying on the literature review, this research outlines the traits of extroverted and introverted students to identify the intellectual approach that each of these two groups has in learning design and using it, in addition to offering the type of training they require in this regard.
