Problem Solving Skills in Mathematics had been known as an important skill in Mathematics at school. By having problem solving, we could know the advantages of Mathematics in our daily life. Realizing the importance of problem solving, a teacher should try any ways so that the students had the ability in doing that. One of the ways that the teacher could do was by increasing the approach to the students personally and he or she had to realize that every students was different in behavior and moreover in thinking process. He or she had to know the thinking process of the students in order to be able to design the best learning process which made the learning situation was more comfortable. Psychologists stated that the difference personality is the strongest one that students had. The difference personality could be classified based on the similarity tendency which made the type of personality classification. In this research, the writer used the type of personality based on David Keirsey who classified into 4 types : Rational, Idealist, Artisan, and Guardian. In this research, the writer used Exploratory Research through a Qualitative Approach. She wanted to know the process the students’ thinking at Informatics System Department in solving the Mathematics problem based on personality type classification. This research focused on this department because the writer hoped it could be used as a consideration in designing the learning model for Logic Material and Algoritma as a basic programming subject. The balancing between research subject and the advantages of research, problem solving material that was given to the research subject was computation and logic material which was as a basic for the Algoritma construction. the data collection was conducted by combining interviewing method and observation through the subject’s result in written and behavior. The step of problem solving used Polya step which was classified into some steps in order to get Thinking Process Profile in detail. The research procedures were : (1) Determining the Research Subject, (2) Data Collection, (3) Data Analysis and (4) Research Report. The research result show that every personality types had different Thinking Process Profile in problem solving and so did the similar personality type. Thinking Process Profile in problem solving was also different between male and female. This fact made the teacher realized that it was important to know the thinking process profile on every students. By knowing that the teacher could make the learning model based on the thinking process profile of the students according to The Personality Type Classification and Gender at Informatics System Department
