Abstract [sv]

Studien undersökte sambandet mellan Self-efficacy, personlighet utifrån Big five, viljan att leda i framtiden samt vilket kön deltagarna ansåg vara bäst på att leda. Studien undersökte om skillnader fanns beroende på kön, ålder och arbetslivserfarenhet. Totalt 132 högskolestuderande besvarande en enkät. Resultatet visade att viljan att leda inte predicerades av kön, ålder eller arbetslivserfarenhet. Kön, ålder eller arbetslivserfarenhet predicerade inte individens Self- efficacy. Self- efficacy och personlighetsdimensionerna visade på samband i vissa fall; Self- efficacy och Neuroticism hade ett negativt samband medan Self-efficacy hade ett positivt samband med Extraversion. Viljan att leda predicerades av personlighetsdimensionerna Extraversion och Agreeableness. Extraversion hade ett positivt samband och Agreeableness ett negativt samband med viljan att leda. Kvinnor hade högre nivå av Conscientiousness än män. Self-efficacy och personlighet var de variabler som starkast predicerade viljan att leda. Män ansåg i högre grad än kvinnor att män var bättre ledare. Reliabiliteten för Big five, Self-efficacy samt frågorna om ledarskap låg på en accepterad nivå och samtliga frågor kunde användas i enkäten. De personer som hade som mål att i framtiden ha en ledande position tenderade att ha en hög grad av personlighetsdimensionen Extraversion och hade en hög tro på sin egen förmåga i en specifik situation. Det som påverkade viljan att leda negativt var personlighetsdimensionen Agreeableness

Abstract [en]

The study examined the relationship between Self-efficacy, personality, based on the Big Five, and the willingness to lead in the future, and if the participants in this study thought that males or females were better leaders. This study investigated whether differences according to gender, age and work experience did exist. 132 university students responded to a questionnaire.

The results showed that the desire to lead not was predicted by gender, age or work experience. Gender, age and work experience did not predict individual Self-efficacy. Self-efficacy and personality dimensions showed associations in some cases; Self-efficacy and Neuroticism had a negative association, while Self-efficacy had a positive association with Extraversion. The desire to lead was predicted by personality dimensions Extraversion and Agreeableness. Extraversion had a positive relationship and Agreeableness was negatively related to the willingness to lead. Women had higher levels of Conscientiousness compared to men. Self-efficacy and personality were the variables that best predicted the willingness to lead. Men felt to a greater extent than women that men were better leaders. The reliability of the Big Five, Self-efficacy, as well as the statements of leadership was at an acceptable level and all questions could be used in the questionnaire. The people who had the goal to have a leading position in the future tended to have a high degree of the personality dimension Extraversion
