The article describes the process of adaptation of the Big Five Inventory-2 into the Slovak language and cultural context. The translation process of the Slovak BFI-2 was based on three data samples using item analysis and basic psychometric properties. The present study estimates the psychometric properties of the Slovak BFI-2 and its hierarchical...

This study explores the effect of Big Five personality traits on behavioral and emotional responses to the COVID-19 pandemic. Personality traits of 248 Slovak persons were assessed twice before the pandemic using the Big Five Inventory 2. Behavioral and emotional responses to the pandemic were collected during the first and second pandemic wave (Ap...

There is a growing body of work suggesting that social class stereotypes are amplified when people perceive higher levels of economic inequality—that is, the wealthy are perceived as more competent and assertive and the poor as more incompetent and unassertive. The present study tested this prediction in 32 societies and also examines the role of w...

The COVID-19 pandemic caused drastic social changes for many people, including separation from friends and coworkers, enforced close contact with family, and reductions in mobility. Here we assess the extent to which people's evolutionarily-relevant basic motivations and goals—fundamental social motives such as Affiliation and Kin Care—might have b...
Article
Full-text available
How does psychology vary across human societies? The fundamental social motives framework adopts an evolutionary approach to capture the broad range of human social goals within a taxonomy of ancestrally recurring threats and opportunities. These motives—self-protection, disease avoidance, affiliation, status, mate acquisition, mate retention, and...

Affect is involved in many psychological phenomena, but a descriptive structure, long sought, has been elusive. Valence and arousal are fundamental, and a key question-the focus of the present study-is the relationship between them. Valence is sometimes thought to be independent of arousal, but, in some studies (representing too few societies in th...
Article
Acquiescence is a tendency to systematically agree with all items without regard to their content. It is questionable whether acquiescence is consistent across different domains and methods (e.g. Danner & Rammstedt, 2016). The goal of this study was to investigate the possible consistency or specificity of domains and methods. The sample consists o...

While well-being is known to be mainly predicted by relatively stable personality traits and demographic factors, under circumstances of the current COVID-19 pandemic, the role of these predictors may be attenuated, and more situational factors may come into play. In the present study, we examined those relatively stable predictors of well-being al...

Norm enforcement may be important for resolving conflicts and promoting cooperation. However, little is known about how preferred responses to norm violations vary across cultures and across domains. In a preregistered study of 57 countries (using convenience samples of 22,863 students and non-students), we measured perceptions of the appropriatene...

In this article, we discuss social desirability and personality traits BFI-2. In our article, we understand social desirability as a tendency of respondents to respond to items in a direction that is socially acceptable (King, Bruner, 2000; Anglim et al., 2017). There are five personality traits in Big Five theory - extraversion, negative emotional...

Ciele. Odlišné fungovanie položiek (DIF) možno skúmať prostredníctvom viacerých metód založených na klasickej teórii testov ako aj teórii odpovede na položku. Štúdia je zameraná na porovnanie identifikovaných odlišne fungujúcich položiek skupín mužov a žien, resp. konzistenciu výsledkov Mantel-Haenszelovej procedúry, logistickej regresie a metódy S...

Odlišné fungovanie položky vyjadruje stav kedy je pravdepodobnosť správnej alebo kľúčovej odpovede na položku odlišná u respondentov z rôznych skupín, ktorí však majú rovnakú alebo približne rovnakú mieru meranej vlastnosti (Clauser, Mazor, 1998). Výskyt odlišne fungujúcich položiek v psychodiagnostických metódach je nežiaducim javom, ktorý je spáj...

Abstrakt Štúdia sa zaoberá uniformným odlišným fungovaním položiek (DIF) medzi obyvateľmi obcí a menších miest (do 20 tisíc obyvateľov) a obyvateľmi väčších miest (nad 20 tisíc obyvateľov) v slovenskej verzii revidovaného Eysenckovho osobnostného dotazníka (EPQ-R). Uniformné DIF nastáva, keď má jedna zo skupín respondentov vyššiu pravdepodobnosť kľ...

Odlišné fungovanie položky (DIF) vyjadruje stav, kedy je pravdepodobnosť kľúčovej odpovede na položku odlišná medzi členmi porovnávaných skupín, ktorí majú rovnakú, alebo približne rovnakú mieru meranej vlastnosti (Clauser a Mazor, 1989). Štúdia sa zameriava na identifikáciu odlišne fungujúcich položiek v Inventári Veľkej Päťky (Big Five Inventory;...
