Description

Personality correlates with race-based stress and cross-group friendship. Undergraduates at a predominately white liberal arts university (N = 728)  completed a Qualtrics survey that included the IPIP-NEO-120, the RS-Race questionnaire, and a locally developed friendship scale. All Big Five personality factors correlated moderately with cross-group friendship formation and agreeableness and conscientiousness with race-based stress. This research may enable universities to develop better programs to support minority students as they transition into predominately white universities.
