Autonomous learning is sometimes linked with the language learner's personal characteristic. One of the factor in evaluating students' performance and strategies is examining what character they brought during the learning process and how they participate in the classroom. Unfortunately, many English teachers still skip this part and assume that it does need to understand students' temperament to promote ELT in the class. This study aims at finding out the perceptions and preferences of STAIN Watampone students particularly introvert students who have been taught English through autonomous learning system. Using interviews, it was revealed that the introvert students show more enthusiasm and positive response than extrovert in learning English. The finding shows that the use of autonomous learning system can encourage introvert students to participate in the class and help the teachers to meet their introvert students' expectations easier. It indicates that teachers or the stake holder can optimize discussions and projects to suit introvert learners' preferences of ELT in the future.
