Student’s spatial reasoning is the process of manipulating objects that can help students to solving the daily problems about spatial. The aim of this study was to know students’ spatial reasoning in solving geometry problems based on personality types. This study was used qualitative descriptive approach to examine four participants which represented each type of Keirsey’s personality called “The Keirsey Temperament Sorter”. The data were collected from spatial reasoning task and interview. The results showed every personalities types had different ability of spatial reasoning in solving geometry problem. In spatial visualization, students who had guardian and artisan personalities could identify the figure with their sensing. The rational student identified the figure with his knowledge. The idealist student had experienced difficulties to identify the figure. In mental rotation guardian and idealist student could imagined the figure that has been rotated. The idealist student had seen the pattern of the figure to solving the problem. The artisan and rational student had answered with the wrong answer. Because the rational student just focused in angle but ignore direction of the figure and the artisan student had answered in a hurry. In spatial orientation guardian and artisan personalities had drawn with details. The rational personalities had drawn without regard the size of the figure.
