Syftet med föreliggande studie var att studera om det fanns något samband mellan stress och personlighet, upplevd kontroll, samt socialt stöd. I studien deltog 135 deltagare, 58 män, 71 kvinnor, och 6 deltagare besvarade inte vilket kön de tillhör. Samtliga deltagare fyllde i frågeformulär om variablerna upplevd stress, personlighet, upplevd kontroll, samt socialt stöd. Resultatet visade att det finns ett positivt samband mellan stress och neuroticism. Det fanns negativa samband mellan stress och extroversion, stress och vänlighet, samt stress och samvetsgrannhet. Vidare förelåg det ett negativt samband mellan kontroll och neuroticism. Ett positivt samband fanns mellan kontroll och öppenhet. Slutligen fanns det ett negativt samband mellan socialt stöd och neuroticism. Det förelåg positiva samband mellan socialt stöd och extroversion, socialt stöd och vänlighet, samt socialt stöd och samvetsgrannhet. Studien visar att socialt stöd, upplevd kontroll, samt personlighetsdimensionerna påverkar hur individer upplever stress.
