Abstract [sv]

Det finns ett stort intresse inom forskningen, för individers personlighet, hur de olika personlighetsdragen påverkar händelser och vad det är som gör att vi människor agerar på olika sätt i olika situationer. När man pratar om personlighet utgår man ofta ifrån Femfaktorsmodellen vilket är en modell som beskriver individers personlighet utifrån fem personlighetsdrag, (Extraversion, Neuroticism, Samvetsgrannhet, vänlighet och Öppenhet). Ett relativt nytt begrepp som tillförts under de senare åren av forskningen är Grit, vilket är ett begrepp som beskriver en individs inre driv och uthållighet att nå långsiktigt uppsatta mål. Grit (som har vissa likheter med Femfaktorsmodellens personlighetsdrag Samvetsgrannhet) har i studier på bland annat studenter och inom organisationsforskning visat sig ha ett starkt samband med Growth Mindset. En individ med Growth mindset tror att intelligens kan utvecklas genom hårt arbete och träning. Forskningen är gedigen när de kommer till personlighet och prestationer i till exempel skolrelaterade situationer. Vi ser att vårt bidrag till forskningen är att se eventuella samband mellan personlighet och Mindset, både personlighetsdraget femfaktorsmodellens samvetsgrannhet och det nyare begreppet Grit i förhållande till Mindset. Vår ambition var också att undersöka vilket av Grit och samvetsgrannhet som är starkast kopplat till Growth mindset. I studien användes en kvantitativ metod genom tre validerade instrument: IPIP30, Dweck Mindset och Learning potential of the workplace scale (LPW) formulären bygger på självskattning i respektive område, och har i tidigare studier visat god validitet. Resultatet i studien visade att sambandet mellan Mindset och Grit var den enda som påvisade fortsatt signifikans när variablerna lades till i regressionsanalysen (r =.37 p <.001).

Abstract [en]

There is a great interest in research, for individuals’ personalities, how the different personality traits affect events and what makes us humans act in different ways in different situations. When talking about personality, one often starts from The Big Five, which is a model that describes individuals´ personality based on five personality traits (Extraversion, Neuroticism, Conscientiousness, Agreeableness and Openness to experience). A relatively new concept has been added in recent years of research, Grit, which is a concept that describes an individual´s inner drive and perseverance to achieve long-term set goals. Grit (which has some similarities with The Big Five theory trait Conscientiousness) has in studies on, among others, students and in organizational research proved to have a strong connection with Growth Mindset. An individual with a Growth Mindset believes that intelligence can be developed through hard work and training. The research is solid when it comes to personality and achievements in for example, school-related situations. Our contribution to the research is to see if any connections between personality and Mindset exists, both the personality trait of the Big Five theory Conscientiousness and the newer concept of Grit in relation to Mindset. We also intend to investigate which of Grit and Conscientiousness is most strongly linked to the Mindset. In the study, we use a quantitative method through three validated instruments: IPIP30 Dweck Mindset and Learning potential of the workplace scale (LPW) forms are based on self-assessment in each area and have in previous studies shown good validity. The results of the study showed that the relationship between Mindset and Grit was the only one that showed continued significance when the variables were added to the regression analysis (r=,37 p >.001). This means that the correlation between Mindset and Grit exists.
