Abstract [sv]

Eftersom studenter ständigt står inför olika prestationsmoment avser denna studie att mäta huruvida det finns ett samband mellan personlighetsdragen ur Big Five-teorin och prestationsångest hos universitets- och högskolestudenter i Sverige, för att vidare kunna undersöka om olika personlighetsdrag är mer eller mindre känsliga för prestationsångest. Studien fick 86 svar på en webbenkät där studenterna först fick svara på bakgrundsvariablerna; kön, ålder, antal studieår, studietakt och om de arbetade parallellt med studierna. Vidare mätte enkäten Big Five’s personlighetsdrag med The Big Five Inventory (BFI) samt prestationsångest, som operationaliseras med Fear of Failure (FF) och mättes med The Performance Failure Appraisal Inventory (PFAI). Vi fann en signifikant positiv relation mellan generell FF och personlighetsdraget neuroticism samt en signifikant positiv relation mellan generell FF och kvinnor. Mycket talar för att alla upplever FF men att vissa har förmågan att vända det till något positivt på grund av en stark passion och motivering för att lyckas nå sina mål.

Abstract [en]

Students is a group that constantly is facing different elements of performance and therefore, this study aims to measure whether there is a correlation between the personality traits of the Big Five theory and performance anxiety for university and college students in Sweden, to further investigate if different personality traits are more or less sensitive to performance anxiety. The study received 86 answers from a web-poll where students first responded to background variables such as; gender, age, number of academic years, study-pace and if they worked during their studies. Furthermore, the survey measured Big Five's personality traits with The Big Five Inventory (BFI) and performance anxiety, got operationalized with Fear of Failure (FF), measured with The Performance Failure Appraisal Inventory (PFAI). The study found a significantpositive relationship between general FF and the personality trait neuroticism and a significantpositiverelationship between general FF and women.Much suggests that everyone experiences some degree of FF but that some have the ability to turn it to something positive due to a strong passion and motivation to succeed in achieving their goals.
