Abstract [sv]

Föreliggande uppsats avser belysa relationen mellan stress och personlighet, detta undersöktes ur ett individorienterat perspektiv som baserades på personlighetsprofiler. Data baserades på en enkätundersökning som mätte personlighet utifrån femfaktormodellen och självupplevd stress. 89 medarbetare på ett svenskt företag deltog i studien, 43 män och 46 kvinnor mellan åldrarna 22 och 66 år. För att klassificera olika personlighetsprofiler genomfördes en klusteranalys. För att sedan undersöka relationen mellan personlighetsprofilerna och upplevd stress jämfördes graden av upplevd stress mellan profilerna. Resultatet visade på att det finns skillnader mellan personlighetsprofilerna avseende graden av upplevd stress. Individer med lägst värden inom extraversion och något lägre värden inom öppenhet i förhållande till de andra dragen och personlighetsprofilerna upplevde högre grad stress. Individer som tillhör personlighetsprofilen med högst värden inom samtliga dimensioner i femfaktormodellen upplevde låg stress.

Abstract [en]

This paper is intended to describe the relationship between stress and personality, this is examined from an individual-oriented perspective based on personality profiles. The data was based on a questionnaire that measured personality based on the five factor model and self-perceived stress. 89 employees of a Swedish company participated in the study, 43 men and 46 women between the ages of 22 and 66 years. A cluster analysis was used to classify different personality profiles. To later examine the relationship between personality profiles and perceived stress the degree of perceived stress was compared between the profiles. The result showed that there are differences between the personality profiles regarding the level of perceived stress. Individuals with the lowest values in extraversion and slightly lower values of openness in relation to other features and personality profiles, experienced higher levels of stress. Individuals belonging to the personality profile with the highest values in all dimensions of the five factor model experienced low levels of stress.
