Abstract

The focus of this paper is the understanding of personality trait prediction in anticipating a particular affective style among young people. The sample consists of 171 students from University of Priština in Kosovska Mitrovica, of both genders, aged 18-26. The data have been processed using descriptive statistics, correlation and regression analysis, and t-test. The most dominant dimension of personality is agreeableness, and the most dominant dimension of affective styles is adjusting. The prediction of personality dimensions in predicting a certain affective style has been confirmed, so that neuroticism is essential in the prediction of all three affective styles. In the prediction of affective style of concealing, personality traits as a model explain 10.7% variance, and besides neuroticism (b = -298; p <0.01), the contribution has been given by extraversion, as well (b = -221, p <0.05). The personality traits explain 36.1% of the variance of adjusting, and the unique contribution has been given by neuroticism (b = -.596, p <0.01), while in the prediction of affective style of tolerating, personality traits explain 9.8% of the total variance, with a significant predictor - neuroticism (b = -.241, p<0.05). Gender has not proven to be a significant source of differences in the expression of affective styles, while there are gender differences in the expression of extraversion and agreeableness in favour of female respondents.
