Abstract:The effects of grouping students based on different levels of extraversion yielded inconclusive research outcomes. The current shift to more online collaboration raises questions about the effect of extraversion-differences in collaborative groups in this online context. The present study, therefore, investigated the influence of students’ differences in their levels of extraversion on well-being and self-esteem during online collaboration. The data were collected during three collaborative assignments, in which university students (n = 17) worked together in three different dyads. Results only indicated a significant increase in students’ well-being for the first assignment and no significant differences in students’ self-esteem. Further, no significant correlations between the students' differences in the levels of extraversion, well-being, and self-esteem were found, suggesting that the composition of the dyads did not affect students’ psychological properties. However, considering several limitations of the study, such as the small sample size and the high dropout rate, it is advisable to further investigate the relationship between the three variables across different virtual learning environments. Overall, the findings of this study contributed to the existing research body by giving first indications of the impact of students’ differences in their levels of extraversion on well-being and self-esteem in an online environment.
