Abstract
The correlation study aims at verifying the possible correlations between personality traits (Conscientiousness, Emotional Stability, Agreeableness, Extraversion and Openness) and road traffic performance and self-perceived wellbeing of young drivers aged between 19 and 25 years. The applied instruments were: The Ryff well-being measuring scale (Ryff, 1989), The Big Five markers-50 (IPPIP) Questionnaire for measuring traffic performance (CEPC, 2008), PANAS-X Questionnaire (eng. Positive and Negative Affect Schedule-Expanded version) and a questionnaire that measures the level of satisfaction. Results showed positive correlations between personality traits and dimensions of wellbeing as well as performance on road traffic, quality of life and positive and negative emotions. Conclusions: The present study can continue with the expansion of the sample of drivers on different ages, education levels and by rural and urban areas.
