Description

Because parents are typically the first agents of socialization for children, it is reasonable to draw hypothesis that they would have an association with personality traits. The purpose of this study is to identify an association between Baumrind's (1966) parenting styles and the Five Factor Personality Model. A total of 767 undergraduate students completed an online research survey that included measures of maternal and paternal parenting style (Authoritarian, Authoritative, and Permissive) and the subscales of the Neo-Five Factor Personality Inventory, which measured traits of Openness, Conscientiousness, Extraversion, Agreeableness, and Neuroticism. Two multiple regression models will be computed for male and female students with each personality trait as the dependent variable and mother and father parenting styles serving as predictor variables. Such analysis will allow us to additionally explore cross-gender interactions between children and parents. This study may help us better understand environmental factors of personality and adopt a more holistic approach toward parenting and its importance in personality development.
