Relationships Between the Five-Factor Personality Model and Coping Styles
Relationships between personality and coping style were investigated using the NEO-FFI and the Coping Inventory for Stressful Situations (CISS). Pearson product-moment correlation coefficients revealed a number of significant relationships for the sample as a whole. Post hoc correlations for males and females separately yielded significant relationships unique to gender. Age differences may have influenced results and may be of more significance than previously recognized.
