This study employed an analytic cross-sectional research design. Students in campus were selected through stratified random sampling based on gender, and measured through a written questionnaire. Prevalence ratios and a Chi square goodness of fit test were then conducted to determine the relationship between personality types and smoking practice among the students. Based from the results obtained via Epi-Info (P-value - 0.7328377003); the decision was not to reject the null hypothesis. Therefore, there was no sufficient evidence to conclude that there was a relationship between the personality type and the practice of smoking among selected medical students of De La Salle Health Sciences Institute S.Y. 2014-2015. Additionally, the confidence interval for this data set was 0.6578 (lower limit)-2.0134 (upper limit). Therefore, it was inconclusive/insignificant.
