Abstract. The present study intends to probe into the relatively complex relationship between English majors’ personality traits and their academic performance, in which the three mediating variables, i.e., self-regulatory efficacy, autonomous motivation and controlled motivation, are involved to testify whether they have played certain mediating roles in this relationship. In the light of the research findings, pedagogical implications are put forward accordingly.
