Sažetak

In this paper an attempt has been made to determine the relationship
between social status and personality dimensions. The
survey was conducted on 2432 subjects aged 18-76. After separate
factor analysis of social status and personality indicators was
conducted, the extracted dimensions were correlated on the
whole sample, male and female subsamples, and age-defined
subsamples. The results indicate that social status has only a weak
influence on personality. The negative relationship between
educational status and authoritarian conformism has been established.
According to Eysenck, this dimension belongs primarily to
the domain of social altitudes, and in the Big Five model it is closest
to the inverse of the openness to experience. Lower socioeconomical
status is probably responsible for the larger amount
of stressful events to which a person is exposed, which is a plausible
explanation for the greater degree of anxiety and depression
such a person is experiencing. No statistically significant relationship
has been found between social status and unsocialised, impulsive
and aggressive personality traits, which opposes Eysenck's
hypothesis.
