Abstract or Summary
  • This is an observational study concerning relationships between personality openness and attitudinal openness. 209 volunteers from two samples, participated in this study. The Ohio sample contained data from 36 self-identified feminists (age 18-65) at the Annual National Women Studies Conference in Akron, Ohio, 1990. The Oregon State university (OSU) sample contained data from 173 undergraduates (age 18-52). Personality openness was assessed by the short form of "Openness to experiences" sub-scale from NEO (Neurosis Extraversion Openness) Personality Inventory (Costa and McCrae, 1985); attitudinal openness was assessed by the Feminism scale (Dempewolff, 197 4). The results suggested that the correlation between openness and feminism was significantly positive across all samples. Feminism attitudes were found to be correlated with course selection, gender, and class standings. On the other hand, personality openness was found to be fairly stable regardless of course selection, age, gender, or class standing. The findings are consistent with a personality construct of openness as a stable disposition, and with feminism as an accumulated attitude that is influenced by experiences, beliefs, and values.
