SOCIAL ATTITUDE CORRELATES OF EYSENCK'S PERSONALITY DIMENSIONS
Abstract:In a sample of 97 female student teachers, correlations were obtained between 4 personality factors measured by a new form of the Eysenck Personality Inventory and 6 social attitude variables measured by the Conservatism Scale. Extraversion was associated with liberalism, realism, hedonism, and non-religiousness. Neuroticism was related to ethnocentrism and the intolerance of minority groups, while psychoticism was associated with general conservatism. These results are discussed in connection with a number of theoretical issues.
