The aim of this brief report was to replicate the meta-analytic findings concerning the relationship between Big-Five personality and political orientation reported in Sibley, Osborne, and Duckitt (2012) in a sample of N = 29,015 participants from four panels involving representative German samples. We replicated the expected significant correlations for Openness to Experience (r = ?0.07; 95% CI [?0.10, ?0.05]) and Conscientiousness (r = 0.06, 95% CI [0.05, 0.08]), but the effect sizes were smaller than in Sibley et al. (2012). We also found significant correlations for Agreeableness (r = ?0.04; 95% CI [?0.05, ?0.03]) and Neuroticism (r = ?0.04; 95% CI [?0.06, ?0.02]), indicating small but significant relations of additional Big-Five dimensions on political orientation.

As no previous research has assessed personality in a large-scale study of student achievement, this study is the first to investigate the relation between personality traits and academic outcomes in adolescence. We used data from two independent Luxembourgish samples of students including a representative sample of 15-year-old students (n = 898) and a large heterogeneous sample of more than 2,000 ninth and tenth graders. We found a differentiated pattern of results concerning key educational outcomes: Conscientiousness was more closely related to grades, whereas Openness showed higher relations with achievement test scores. Possible mechanisms that may underlie the pathways from personality to ducational success and the implications of using short inventories in the context of large-scale educational) studies are discussed.

Drawing on a broad, multidimensional conceptualization of subjective well-being, this study examined the power of childhood general cognitive ability to predict life satisfaction, satisfaction with eight individual life domains, and the frequency of experiencing positive and negative affect in middle adulthood. Data were obtained from a representative Luxembourgish sample (N = 738; 53% female) in a longitudinal study conducted in 1968 and 2008. Childhood general cognitive ability was unrelated to life satisfaction, negatively related to negative affect and satisfaction with free time, and positively related to positive affect and satisfaction with some of the life domains associated with socioeconomic success (i.e. finances, self, housing, work, or health). This predictive power persisted even when childhood socioeconomic status was controlled. [less ▲]

It has recently been shown that perseverance specifically relates to resisting proactive interference [Gay, P., Rochat, L., Billieux, J., d'Acremont, M., & Van der Linden, M. (2008). Heterogeneous inhibition processes involved in different facets of self-reported impulsivity: Evidence from a community sample. Acta Psychologica, 129, 332-339]. The aim of this study was to replicate and extend this finding by investigating the relationships between unintentional control of interference (in a recent-negatives task), intentional control of interference (in a directed-forgetting task), and the four facets of impulsivity. The performance of 71 volunteers indicated that the relevant variables of the two tasks shared very little or no variance. In particular, regression analyses showed that lower perseverance (i.e., higher impulsivity on this facet) predicted more interference-related errors in both tasks and less time dedicated to resolving proactive interference; however, lower perseverance did not predict directed-forgetting cost. Higher urgency predicted higher interference time due to response-conflict. © 2009 Elsevier Inc. [less ▲]
