Attitude towards teamwork : The impact of extraversion, agreeableness and conscientiousness (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien var att undersöka personlighetsfaktorerna extraversion, vänlighet samt samvetsgrannhet, utifrån the Big Five, och deras samband med och påverkan på attityd till teamwork. De demografiska faktorerna kön, ålder samt utbildningsval undersöktes också i samband med personlighetsfaktorerna och attityd till teamwork. Den aktuella studien baserades på en enkätinsamling där 90 studenter från Högskolan Väst deltog. Studenterna studerade Ekonomiprogrammet, Digital Media och Sjuksköterskeprogrammet. Deltagarna var i åldrarna 19-59 där 71 personer var kvinnor och 19 personer var män. Resultatet visade att hög grad av vänlighet har ett samband med en positiv attityd till teamwork och vänlighet förklarade 6.4 % av variansen i attityd till teamwork. Resultatet visade också att vänlighet och samvetsgrannhet skiljde sig åt över kategorin kön där kvinnor hade en högre grad av både vänlighet och samvetsgrannhet än män. Extraversion skiljde sig åt över utbildning där studenter från Ekonomiprogrammet hade en högre grad av extraversion än studenterna från de andra två programmen. Resultatet i den aktuella studien diskuterades utifrån den presenterade litteraturen där likheter och olikheter hittades. Då forskning kring attityd till teamwork är sällsynt, är förhoppningen att den aktuella studien ska väcka intresse till att vilja göra framtida forskning inom detta område.
