This study was intended to investigate the use of language learning strategy employed by English-major pre-service teachers in Midwest China in relation to their gender and personality types. The modified Strategy Inventory for Language Learning (SILL) and adopted personality type inventory were used to collect the data. ANOVA and Chi-square tests were performed for data analysis. The results revealed that gender and personality types have some effects on pre-service teachers’ strategy use at the overall, category and individual levels. The variation patterns of the strategy use were found in terms of the two variables. The implications of these findings for ESL teaching and learning were also discussed.
