The influences of family environment on personality traits

Added: Monaco, Dec. 13, 2016, 2:21 p.m.

The influences of family environment on personality traits were examined. From 13 behavioral characteristics, a factor analysis identified three personality traits: extraversion, maturity, and intellect. Family environment influenced these three personality traits of extraversion, maturity, and intellect.

Extraversion was negatively associated with over protection/interference and with maternal participation in child rearing. Maturity correlated with high socioeconomic status, appropriate child-rearing pat- terns and paternal participation in child rearing. Intellect correlated positively with high socioeconomic status and with maternal participation in child rearing.

Eight percent of variance in extraversion was due to family environment. Family environment explained 14% of variance in maturity and 10% of variance in intellect, respectively. Therefore, family environment seemed to have more impact on maturity than extra-version or intellect.

Introverts and intellects were more susceptible to family environment than were extraverts and non- intellects.

It can be seen, then, that different personality traits have differentiated effects from various aspects of family environment. Further, individuals differ in their susceptibility to the influences of family environment.
