Three of supervisory styles which were attractive (r= 0.48, p< 0.05), interpersonally sensitive (r= 0.48, p< 0.05) and task-oriented (r= 0.42, p< 0.05). The supervisory styles also showed there was significant influence with supervision outcome. Among the three supervisory styles, attractive and interpersonally sensitive was the most influence on supervision outcome (R2=0.23, Adjusted R2=0.22, F(1, 98) = 29.05, p<0.05). The findings of this study perhaps could expand knowledge and understanding on the individual differences to supervision field.
