IT related stress and personality : how does the relationship between the five-factor model and IT related stress look like? (English)
Abstract [sv]

Vi människor lever i en allt mer digitaliserad värld och påverkas av detta såväl i vårt privat- som arbetsliv. Oberoende av yrkesområde har modern teknologi digitaliserat arbetslivet. Även om de senaste årens förändring har inneburit vad som för många är positiva aspekter som flexibilitet, tillgänglighet och rörlighet så är det inte en arbetssituation som passar alla.

Föreliggande studie avsåg att undersöka relationen mellan IT relaterad stress i arbetslivet och personlighet utifrån femfaktormodellen (FFM). Tidigare forskning har etablerat att av de fem personlighetsdrag som utgör FFM har neuroticism och samvetsgrannhet visat på starka relationer med olika former av stress och stressrelaterade fenomen.

Data för 170 deltagare samlades in online genom en enkätundersökning. Enkäten som deltagarna besvarade bestod dels av en skala utvecklad i syfte att fånga IT relaterad stress i arbetslivet och dels av en kortversionsskala för FFM (IPIP30).

Resultaten visade att de individer som påverkas minst av IT relaterad stress, eller eventuellt faktorer som påverkar hur individen hanterar IT relaterad stress, är individer med hög nivå av samvetsgrannhet.

Abstract [en]

We humans live in an increasingly digitized world and this affects both our private and working lives. Regardless of occupation, modern technology has resulted in a digitized work life. Even if the change that has happened within the latest years has resulted in what many would regard as positive aspects such as flexibility, availability and mobility, it is not a work situation that suits everyone.

This study intended to investigate the associations between IT related stress in the working life and personality, based on the five-factor model (FFM). Previous research has established that out of the five personality traits that constitutes FFM, it is neuroticism and conscientiousness that has strong association with different forms of stress and stress-related phenomena.

Data was collected from 170 participants using an online survey. The survey that the participants answered to consisted partly of a scale developed with the purpose of capturing IT related stress in work life and partly of a mini scale for FFM (IPIP30).

The results showed, that the individuals least affected by IT related stress, or potential factors that affect how an individual copes with IT related stress, are individuals with high levels of conscientiousness.
