Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to examine the relation between the Big Five personality traits Extraversion, Agreeableness and Neuroticism and the five conflict styles developed by Thomas-Kilmann: Accommodating, Avoiding, Compromising, Collaborating and Competing. The participants consisted of 128 students of the Linnaeus University in Växjö. A questionnaire consisting of two parts were used for this study: Part one consist of a personality-test developed from Lewis R. Goldberg’s Big-five scale, and part two where the participant is asked to fill out Thomas-Kilmanns conflict style test. Significant results, calculated with Bonferroni’s correction, were found between Extraversion-Accommodating (negative), Extraversion-Avoiding (negative) and Agreeableness-Collaborating (positive). These correlations were still significant with the participants’ gender equate, which indicate the importance of personality in the study of conflict style.

Abstract [sv]

Studien avser att undersöka förhållandet mellan Big Five-personlighetsdragen: Extraversion, Agreeableness och Neuroticism och de fem konfliktstilar som utvecklats av Thomas-Kilmann: Accommodating, Avoiding, Compromising, Collaborating och Competing. I studien deltar 128 studenter på Linnéuniversitetet i Växjö. Undersökningen är baserad på ett frågeformulär som består av två delar, ett personlighetstest med grund i Lewis R. Goldbergs Big-five skala och ett konfliktstilstest utvecklat av Thomas-Kilmann. Efter kalkylering av signifikansnivån med Bonferronis korrektion hittades signifikanta samband för Extraversion-Accommodating (negativt), Extraversion-Avoiding (negativt) och Agreeableness-Collaborating (positivt). Med variabeln kön likställd var dessa samband fortfarande signifikanta, vilket tyder på personlighetens vikt i studiet av konfliktstilar.
