Abstract [sv]

Sammanfattning Föreliggande studie har undersökt om det finns personlighetsskillnader mellan ingenjörsstudenter och en normgrupp. Testet vi använt oss av är baserat på de fem faktorerna i The big five och är vidareutvecklat av rekryteringsföretaget A lot of people till testet B5 personlighetsprofil. Det nätbaserade personlighetstest har skickats ut till ingenjörsstudenter vid svenska högskolor och universitet. Sammanlagt genomförde 184 studenter testet och deras svar har jämförts med en normgrupp bestående av 1215 individer. Respondenternas svar har analyserats med hjälp av oberoende t-test där vi funnit signifikanta skillnader mellan grupperna i tre av de fem faktorerna. I faktorerna vänlighet/behaglighet och öppenhet för nya erfarenheter visade ingenjörsstudenterna ett lägre resultat än normgruppen, medan de i faktorn emotionell stabilitet hade högre värden. Prestation/samvetsgrannhet och extroversion visade inga signifikanta resultat. Dessa resultat anknyts till ingenjörsyrket genom en diskussion och problematisering av personlighetstestning.

Abstract

The present study has examined the differences in personality between engineering students and a norm group. The test used in this study is based on the five factors of The big five and is further

developed by the recruitment company A lot of people to a test named B5 personlighetsprofil. The test was taken online and has been sent to engineering students in Sweden. This resulted in 184

respondents which the study is now based on. The test-results has been analyzed by using an independent t-test, where significant differences between the groups where found in three out of the five factors. The engineering students showed lower values in the factors agreeableness and openness to experience, while they had higher values in the factor emotional stability.

Conscientiousness and extraversion showed no significant results. These results are connected to the engineering profession through the discussion and problematization of personality testing.
