Personality, attitudes and robots : an essay about personality, nationality and previous experience with robots (English)
Abstract [sv]

Denna uppsats handlar om hur personlighet, erfarenhet och kulturella skillnader samverkar med attityder till robotar. Den gjordes därför att implementeringen av robotar i samhället, i synnerhet på arbetsplatser, idag ökar, och människor kommer i framtiden att ha mer kontakt med robotar till vardags. Vad samverkar egentligen med attityder gentemot robotar? För att besvara frågan studerades den ur olika perspektiv, där vi tittade på både interna och externa faktorer som kunde spela en signifikant roll. Interna faktorer var de individuella skillnaderna personlighetsdrag och erfarenhet, och den externa faktorn kulturella skillnader. Personlighet mättes med MINI- International Personality Item Pool, MINI-IPIP. De personlighetsdrag som mättes var extraversion och neuroticism. Attityd till robotar mättes med Negative Attitudes toward Robots Scale. Svaren på enkäterna jämfördes sedan för att analysera eventuella samband och skillnader. Sammanlagt deltog 47 studenter från olika lärosäten runtom i Västsverige i studien, 24 män respektive 23 kvinnor. Av dessa hade 21 tidigare erfarenhet av robotar. Insamlade data analyserades med en standard linjär multipel regressionsanalys och oberoende t-test. Resultaten av den genomförda studien visade en statistisk signifikant skillnad mellan dem med och utan erfarenhet av robotar och det fanns kulturella skillnader. Till skillnad från resultat från tidigare liknande studier om attityder till robotar fann denna studie dock inte att personlighet samverkar med attityd till robotar.

Abstract [en]

This is an essay about how personality, experience and cultural differences can correlate with attitude toward robots. Because of the increasing implementation of robots in many areas of society today, workplaces in particular, humans will in the future have a greater amount of contact with robots in everyday life. The study has tried to investigate what it is that correlates with these attitudes. To try to find an answer to the question, it has been studied from different perspectives, by looking at both internal as well as external factors. Internal factors being individual differences such as personality type and previous experience or familiarity with robots, and external factors being cultural differences. Personality-type was determined with and a MINI- International Personality Item Pool test, MINI-IPIP. The personality dimensions that were measured were extraversion and neuroticism. Attitude toward robots was measured with Negative attitudes toward Robots scale. Results from the questionnaires were later used to compare answers and analyze possible correlations and differences. A total of 47 students from different universities participated in the study, 24 males and 23 females, from which 21 had previous experience of robots. Collected data was analyzed with a standard linear multiple regression and independent t-test. Results showed a statistically significant difference between students with previous experience of robots and those without, and there were cultural differences. In contrast to previous similar studies conducted on the subject, the results of this study found that personality could not predict attitudes toward robots.
