Sažetak

The purpose of this research is to investigate the relationship of personality dimension defined by
the Big Five personality model: extraversion, emotional stability, agreeableness, consciousness and
intellect, with reading habits among Croatian high school students from the city of Osijek region.
Furthermore, we wanted to investigate the ability to predict reading quantity based on personality
dimensions, with the contribution of factors such as age, gender and school success. The results
displayed are a part of a larger study on prejudice and attitudes.
A total of 103 participants, aged from 14 to 20 years, filled in a short questionnaire about how
much, compared to other pupils from their school, they read books, enjoy reading news and how
many books they read in a year. Also, they completed a short version of IPIP 50 personality questionnaire.
Results show a significant positive correlation between how much the participants read and how
much they enjoy reading books with the intellect personality dimension (r=.347, p<.01 and
r=.276, p<.05 respectively). Other personality dimensions showed no significant correlations with
reading variables. In hierarchical regression analyses, after controlling for the effect of age, gender
and school success, the Big Five model of personality was able to predict around 20 % of variance
of reading quantity, with the intellect being the only significant predictor.
