The relationship between specific personality traits and income (English)
Abstract [sv]

Idag finns det endast begränsad forskning om sambanden mellan inkomstutfall och specifika personlighetsdrag, därför ville vi undersöka detta vidare. Syftet med studien var sålunda att undersöka sambanden mellan inkomstutfall och specifika personlighetsdrag inom Big Five. Uttrycket ”fasett” användes i studien och avsåg specifika personlighetsdrag som tillsammans bildade bredare benämningar på olika personlighetsdrag. Personlighetsdragen delades in i fem bredare benämningar (faktorer) och 30 specifika personlighetsdrag, varav 11 lyftes fram i denna studie. Sambanden studerades på fasettnivå, samtidigt som det kontrollerades för ålder, kön och antal år i nuvarande yrket. Studien bestod av en enkät med två delar, dels med 16 självskattade frågor kring inkomst dels med 120 självskattade påståenden kring personlighet, IPIP NEO - 120. Data bearbetades med en korrelationsanalys och en multipel regressionsanalys. I studien testades fyra hypoteser, där tre av fyra kunde få stöd av resultatet (N=131, ålder 18–61 år, 68% kvinnor och 32% män). Anxiety (ångest), assertiveness (bestämdhet) och achievement-striving (prestationsinriktad) var de tre fasetter som fann stöd i resultatet. Modesty (blygsamhet) fann inte stöd. Av alla fasetter så visade adventurousness (äventyrlig) (β = .24, p = .02) och achievement-striving (prestationsinriktad) (β = .25, p = .01) störst prediktiv (förutsägande) förmåga tillsammans med kontrollvariabeln ålder (β = .52, p < .001). Resultaten från studien kan vara till hjälp genom att ge en bild av personlighetens generella prediktiva förmåga för inkomst samt vikten av samspelet mellan yrkeskvalifikationer och personlighet. Kunskap om hur personlighet samvarierar med inkomst kan bidra till utveckling inom områden som rekrytering, personalvägledning och lönesättning

Abstract [en]

Today there is limited research on the relationship between specific personality traits and income. The purpose of the study was to investigate the relationship between income and specific personality traits within the Big Five. The term "facet" was used in the study referring to the 30 specific personality traits, 11 of which are highlighted in this study, which together form five broader factors. The correlations were studied at facet level, whilst controlling for age, sex and number of years in the current profession. The study consisted of a two-part questionnaire, partly with 16 selfassessed questions about income, partly with 120 self-assessed claims about personality (IPIP NEO-120). Data was processed using a correlation analysis and a multiple regression analysis. 4 hypotheses were tested, where 3 out of 4 could be supported by the result (N = 131, age 18-61 years, 68% women and 32% men). Anxiety, assertiveness and achievement-striving were the 3 facets that found support in the result, while Modesty did not find support. Of all facets, adventurousness (β = .24, p = .02) and achievement-striving (β = .25, p = .01) showed the greatest predictive ability along with the control variable age (β = .52 , p <.001). The results from the study can be helpful by showing the predictive ability of personality on income as well as the relation between professional qualifications and personality. Knowledge about how personality correlates with income can contribute to development in areas such as recruitment, personnel development and salary settlements.
