The Correlation between Personality Dimensions Measured by the Questionnaire Called Velikih 5 + 2 and Dimensions of the Level of Aspiration

Rajković Dragica

Abstract


This study is about searching the correlation between personality dimensions and dimensions of the level of aspiration The study applied two instruments: Velikih 5+2 ( VP+2 ; Smederevac , Mitrovic and Čolović , 2009), which assesses seven dimensions of personality and their subscales, which are Neuroticism , Conscientiousness , Pleasantness, Extraversion, Openness to experience , Negative valence and Positive valence, and Aspiration Index ( aspiration Index , Kasser and Ryan , 1996 ) designed to measure the level of intrinsic and extrinsic aspiration. The results show correlation between the Positive valence and Importance of extrinsic values, the Probability of intrinsic values, the Probability of extrinsic values and the Achievement of extrinsic values. Negative valence correlates with the Importance of extrinsic values, the Probability of intrinsic values, the Probability of extrinsic values, the Achievement of intrinsic values and the Achievement of extrinsic values. Openness is associated with the Probability of intrinsic values, the Importance of intrinsic values, the Achievement of extrinsic values and the Achievement of intrinsic values. Extraversion is associated with the Importance of intrinsic values, while Conscientiousness correlates with the Achievements of intrinsic values. When it comes to gender, there is a significant correlation gained with variables measuring Importance of intrinsic values and Probability of intrinsic values, and the results show that higher scores on these dimensions are achieved by women.
