Neuroticisms inverkan på miljövänligt beteende (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

Recent research suggests that personality traits are associated with proenvironmental behavior. However, it is unclear how the specific trait neuroticism might relate to it. This study aimed to investigate the influence of neuroticism on proenvironmental behavior and tested the hypothesis that higher neuroticism leads to more proenvironmental behaviors by higher levels of proenvironmental attitudes. Two hundred sixty-two Swedish participants answered an online survey, which included the NEO-PI-3 Neuroticism scale, the New Ecological Paradigm Scale, and the Pro-environmental Behavior Scale. Results revealed that neuroticism was not associated with proenvironmental behaviors, but that neuroticism to a small positive extent influences proenvironmental behavior by stronger proenvironmental attitudes. The author then made suggestions for why neuroticism might affect proenvironmental behavior indirectly but not directly.

Abstract [sv]

Den senaste forskningen tyder på att personlighetsdrag är kopplade till miljövänligt beteende. Däremot är det oklart hur det specifika personlighetsdraget neuroticism kan relateras till det. Denna studie syftade till att undersöka hur neuroticism påverkar miljövänligt beteende och testade hypotesen att neuroticism leder till miljövänliga beteenden genom högre grad av miljövänliga attityder. Tvåhundrasextiotvå svenska deltagare svarade på en enkät online som innefattade neuroticism-skalan från NEO-PI-3, new ecological paradigm-skalan och pro-environmental behavior-skalan. Resultaten visade att neuroticism inte var associerat till miljövänliga beteenden, men att neuroticism till en liten, positiv grad inverkar på miljövänliga beteenden genom starkare miljövänliga attityder. Författaren gav sedan en förklaring för hur neuroticism kan påverka miljövänliga beteenden indirekt men inte direkt.
