Personality and preferences regarding mobilephone as well as portable sounds (English)
Abstract [sv]

Tidigare studier har indikerat att extroverta personer använder mobiltelefoni mer än vad introverta personer gör (Inyang et al. 2010). En enkätstudie genomfördes för att testa sambandet mellan personlighetstyp och huruvida en frekvenspreferens gällande brukandet av mobiltelefoni eller portabelt ljud förelåg. Hundra stycken deltagare svarade på enkäten som bestod av tre delar. Fyra hypoteser var formulerade; extroverta förutspåddes vara flitigare brukare av mobiltelefon än introverta, medan introverta förutspåddes vara flitigare i brukandet av portabelt ljud. Personer med social fobi förutspåddes använda mindre mobiltelefoni, men mer portabelt ljud, än personer utan social fobi. Neurotiker förutspåddes använda portabelt ljud i större utsträckning än de brukar mobiltelefoni. En skillnad förutspåddes finnas mellan män och kvinnor gällande användande av mobiltelefoni och portabelt ljud. Resultaten visade inte på något samband mellan extraversion eller social fobi och användningsfrekvens gällande mobiltelefon, eller portabelt ljud vilket inte stöder hypotesen, däremot så fanns ett samband mellan neuroticism och användningsfrekvens vilket delvis stöder hypotesen och förövrigt indikerar resultaten att kvinnor jämfört med män föredrar mobiltelefon framför portabelt ljud i detta avseende.

Abstract [en]

Previous studies have indicated that extroverts use mobile cell phones more than introverts (Inyang et al. 2010). A survey was carried out to test the relationship between personality type and frequency preference for mobile cell phones and portable sound use. A hundred individuals participated in the survey containing three parts of questions. It was predicted that extroverts will be more active users of mobile phones than introverts, while introverts were predicted to be more active users of portable sound. People with social phobia were predicted to use less of mobile telephony, but more of portable sound, than people lacking social phobia. Neurotics were predicted to use less of mobile telephony, but more of portable sound, than non-neuritics. A gender effect was also predicted. The result did not show any relation between extraversion or social fobia, and mobile phone or portable sound usage, which doesn’t support the hypothesis, on the other hand a relation between neuroticism and mobile phone usage and portable sound usage was supported and women compared to men were also shown to prefer mobile phone to portable sound.
