Personality´s interaction with risk perception (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien var att undersöka samband mellan subjektiv riskperception och personlighetsdrag, samt ålder och riskperception. Enkäter delades ut till 31 deltagare, varav 11 stycken var isolerare och 20 var ställningsbyggare. Respondenterna fick besvara huruvida de blev utsatta för diverse risker på sin arbetsplats och utifrån detta beräknades korrelationer med resultat från deras personlighetstest. Studien visade på ett negativt samband mellan personlighetsdraget vänlighet och riskperception, alltså att ju högre värde på vänlighet desto svagare var upplevelsen utav att bli utsatt för allvarliga risker på arbetsplatsen. Det visade sig även finnas ett starkt positivt samband mellan personlighetsdraget samvetsgrannhet och riskperception, vilket innebar att ju högre värde på samvetsgrannhet desto starkare upplevelse hade respondenterna utav att bli utsatt för en allvarlig risk. Studien visade även att personlighetsdimensionerna tillsammans svarade för 19 % av variansen i riskperceptionen.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between subjective risk perception and personality traits, as well as age and risk perception. Questionnaires were distributed to 31 participants, 11 of which were insulators and 20 were scaffolders. Respondents were asked to answer whether they were exposed to various hazards in the workplace and on this basis correlations were calculated with the results of their personality tests. There was a negative relationship between the personality dimension agreeableness and risk perception, the higher the value of agreeableness the less experience out of being exposed to serious risks in the workplace. There was also a strong positive correlation between the personality dimension conscientiousness and risk perception, which means the higher the value of consciousness the higher experience the participants had of exposure to hazards. The study also showed that the total personality dimensions accounted for 19% of the variance in the risk perception.
